Marguerite Humeau @ Tate Britain
18 November 2017 - 15 April 2018
Marguerite Humeau’s research led process usually takes the form of large scale installations involving sound and sculpture, in which she challenges key issues of the day using complex narratives that synthesise the past with the present. Humeau’s installation, Echoes, is conceived as a confrontation between life and death, with the gallery transformed into part temple, part laboratory for the industrial production of an elixir for eternal life. At the heart of the space, two semi-abstracted white polystyrene sculptures based on Ancient Egyptian gods, Wadjet (King Cobra) 2015 and Taweret 2015, merge the organic nature of the human body with biological engineering.
