Robert Morris Interactive Installation at Tate Modern (Trailer)

This film shows a re-creation of Tate Gallery’s first fully interactive exhibition, Bodyspacemotionthings, by American artist Robert Morris, which took place in 1971.

The original performance inspired a huge media and public interest, when an art gallery asked people for the first time to physically interact with an art work.

The series of huge props including beams, weights, platforms, rollers, tunnels and ramps built from materials such as plywood, stone, steel plate, and rope transformed the Turbine Hall. Shockingly, it was closed just four days after opening, due to the unexpected and over enthusiastic response of the audience.

This time around, it was created using contemporary materials based upon the original plans, in collaboration with Morris.

Bodymotionspacesthings was installed at Tate Modern as part of UBS Openings: The Long Weekend 2009.
