Synopsis: The Belgian-born artist Carsten Höller (b.1961) will undertake the seventh commission in The Unilever Series for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. This annual challenge to fill the hall’s immense space is one of the most prestigious and demanding in contemporary art, and Höller’s installation is certain to raise many eyebrows.

A fascinating record of this major project, Carsten Höller is also a detailed survey of the artist’s entire career. Trained originally as a scientist, Höller’s central concerns relate to play, communal experience, and altered states of perception. He has filmed himself under the influence of psychotropic fungi and created one piece (Solandra Greenhouse) featuring plants that release chemicals capable of inducing feelings of love. Many of his works require the participation of the viewer to achieve their complete form, often blurring the distinction between art and play. Includes dramatic installation shots and a new interview with the artist.

About the Author: Jessica Morgan is a curator at Tate Modern.

Book Description TATE PUBLISHING, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The German artist Carsten Holler (b.1961 in Brussels) will undertake the seventh commission in The Unilever Series for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. The annual commission to fill the gallery s immense hall is one of the most challenging but also prestigious tasks in contemporary art. One of the most important artists of his generation, his work ranges from the purely conceptual to the elaborately architectural. Holler s works frequently require participation from the viewer to take their final form. Well used to working on a large scale, he demonstrates his central concerns which relate to human behaviour, the questioning of logic, altered states of mind and perception. Interested in mass communal experience, his explorations often involve playful elements - Holler is currently working on a version of a funfair, with the rides and music slowed down and previous architectural installations have featured slides. Other well-known works have included Sliding Doors (2003), a series of electronic sliding doors with a mirrored surface through which the audience passes in a seemingly endless passage, and Upside-Down Mushroom Room (2000) which features enormous, fabricated red and white fly-agaric mushrooms, their stalks fixed to the ceiling, slowly rotating in a mesmerising way. This publication will consider how Holler approaches the daunting and exciting Turbine Hall, providing close examination of the creative process from inception to completion. With stunning illustration and photography throughout, this will be a fascinating record of what promises to be the most challenging commission faced by this intriguing artist.
