Hyundai Commission: SUPERFLEX One Two Three Swing!

Tate Modern has always been a good stop off for families with its vast turbine hall space perfect for toddling. Now the Tate’s latest Hyundai Commission has filled the space with swings of all shapes and sizes.

Suspended from bright orange frames that lead from the Turbine Hall out into an outdoor playground, the swings are for three people to share. Superflex, the Danish artists behind the installation, want to prove how we can harness our collective energy to resist gravity.

MJ, G and I tried out as many of the different swings as we could, they have different lengths of chains so swing higher or faster depending on which swing you choose. All around us, people of all ages were experiencing a little moment of pure childish joy. Sometimes all it takes is a simple pleasure…

Try it yourself. SUPERFLEX One Two Three Swing! is at Tate Modern until 2 April 2018.
