BMW Tate Live Exhibition: Anne Imhof. Tate Modern unveils vital new work by Anne Imhof.

London. Between 22 – 31 Mar Tate Modern stages its
third annual BMW Tate Live Exhibition in a windy subterranean
Tanks. Anne Imhof’s energetic designation “Sex” is a first
plan by a solo artist to occupy a full apartment of spaces in the
Tanks. Anne Imhof is one of a many pioneering contemporary artists
of her generation, awarded in 2015 with a Preis der Nationalgalerie,
a long-term partner of BMW, and leader of a prestigious Golden Lion
during Venice Biennale in 2017.

The elect is both an muster by day and a array of 6 live
performances by night. Titled “Sex”, a work deals with
fluidity between binaries – womanlike and male, tip and bottom, night and
day – and a confused line where dual hostile zones meet. Structural
interventions splice by any of a grand spaces. In a South
Tank, visitors travel into a space on a lifted platform, a scenario
mirrored in a East Tank where a hierarchy of observation is reversed
and visitors are situated on a belligerent underneath a pier. The adjacent
Transformer galleries arrangement a collection of Imhof’s Gradient and
Scratch paintings, alongside elements of sculpture that meddle in
a architecture.

Since 2012, Imhof has worked with a core organisation of collaborators from
different backgrounds to make her durational performances. During six
conspicuous evenings during Tate Modern, they will live a space while
interacting with any other and enchanting with situations and objects
that offer as settings for their characters. Imhof doesn’t seem in
a work herself though is present, orchestrating a work and sending
records and directions to her collaborators. Power dynamics between
performer and spectator are also a pivotal member of “Sex”.
Viewing positions swap between high and low, shifting
perspectives on a live tableaux. Performers also occupy an
untouched section behind a potion assign in a East Tank, onto
that they paint. Although a structure and measure of a live work is
delicately grown by Imhof, what happens within a four-hour
generation is contingent on a individuality and organisation of the
performers, creation any entertainment singular and unrepeatable.

Graeme Grieve, Chief Executive Officer, BMW Group UK and Ireland,
said: “Through a partnership with Tate Modern, BMW Tate Live
has grown into an innovative muster format that attracts the
world’s heading opening artists to London. We are gay that
Anne Imhof will theatre her sparkling programme in a Tanks space in
Mar and demeanour brazen to another successful exhibition.”

Anne Imhof is eminent for entertainment formidable performative projects over
prolonged durations of time, such as “Faust”, an heated and
enchanting designation combined for a German pavilion during a 57th
Venice Biennale in 2017. The artist divided a interior with glass
partitions and floors inhabited by a choreographed organisation of
performers. Other new projects have enclosed “Angst”,
presented in 3 acts during Kunsthalle Basel, Hamburger Bahnhof –
Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, and a Biennale de Montréal in 2016.
