Facelift visit Tate Modern
12 October 2006 Email this articleThis month saw Facelift Access Hire visit the Tate Modern?s Turbine Hall. We provided a Nifty 170 to assist in the assembly of five stainless steel and acrylic glass slides, forming an artistic interactive playground for the general public. The longest slide is 58m high and the installations fill this huge but interesting venue known for its pleasure and entertainment. The idea comes from its creator Carsten Holler, a Belgian-born German conceptual artist known well abroad. In a feasibility study commissioned by Holler it is intimated that slides can reduce problems of depression, obesity, respiratory conditions and mental health, whilst also reducing the risks of heart attack.
