Inverted HouseProgramme | 21.11.2013
About the project: The cooperation implies collaboration between the two institutions and curators Una Popović and Hannah Dewar on a joint project that will result in the organization of two exhibitions. The first exhibition is organized in London, while the second exhibition will be organized somewhere in the middle of the next year at the Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade. The cooperation is being realized in the context of the Project Space program/project, which the Tate Modern has been conducting successfully for two years and that implies direct association of the Tate Modern with art institutions and non-commercial cultural organizations throughout the world. The intention of this program is to establish direct cooperation and promote a series of independent or group international exhibitions and projects of visual artistic practice. Focus lies on the realization of smaller curatorial modules (from organizing an independent exhibition to presenting a group exhibition, maximum 5 artists) and presentation of younger authors, recent artistic practices or individual artistic achievements.
About the exhibition: With a title alluding to a safe, homely or known place where things have been disrupted and disjointed in curious ways, Inverted House is an immersive installation that responds to the Tate modern building and the internal structures that govern it, as well as the larger themes linking both institutions in an international context. It brings together a number of new works on paper and a range of different architectural elements – fabricated from tactile and evocative materials including wood, fabric and concrete – to address the wider complexities and idiosyncrasies of social systems and everyday realities, as well as the building works that currently characterise Tate Modern’s exterior. Addressing themes of temporality and impermanence – with a tent-like canopy that hovers above the space and a wall mural that will exist only for as long as the exhibition does – it is an exploration of the ties between a local and international context, the artist residency format and the collaborative nature of the Project Space series itself.
Tina Gverović and Siniša Ilić began working together in 2006 whilst taking part in a residency program at ISC P – International Studio and Curatorial Program, New York as winners of the Radoslav Putar Award (Croatia) and the Dimitrije Bašićević Mangelos Award (Serbia). Since then they have collaborated on a number of exhibitions and artist books, creating works that deal with personal and social states of tension, uneasiness, fragility and confusion. Their immersive multi-media installations focus on the gallery space itself, the context in which the work is shown and the visitors’ interpretation of it. Recent collaborative exhibitions include: Fordham Gallery, London; Arsenal Gallery, Białystok, Poland; Project Biennial D-0 AR K Underground, Konjic, Bosnia and Herzegovina; Art Gallery, Belgrade Cultural Centre; 25th Nadežda Petrović Memorial, Čačak, Serbia; Nova Gallery, Zagreb; and Kontekst Gallery, Belgrade.
