Tino Sehgal: This Situation

Tino Sehgal: This Situation
DUBLIN  •  Irish Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing
This Situation offers Irish gallery-goers the first opportunity to experience Anglo-German artist Tino Sehgal’s innovative approach to art, in which he responds to and engages with gallery visitors through the use of conversation, sound and movement. Originally conceived in 2007, This Situation has toured globally with the support of the Goethe-Institut.

Sehgal studied both political economics and choreography, working in dance before focusing on his ‘constructed situations’. In this most recent version of This Situation at IMMA, the gallery is occupied by a group of six ‘participants’ or ‘interpreters’ whose choreographed actions generate a discussion of cultural, economic and philosophical issues. Revealed only as experiences in the time and space they occupy, his works exist for those who encounter them and in their memories, but not as physical objects.

Tino Sehgal was born in London in 1976 and currently lives and works in Berlin. Solo exhibitions of his work have been held around the world, most recently in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall and Documenta 13 Art Festival, Kassel, Germany in 2012.
