In Love With The World

Hyundai Commission Tate Modern, Turbine Hall Bankside, London


“What would it feel like to share the world with machines that could live in the wild and evolve on their own?”

Artist Anicka Yi offers a vision of a new ecosystem within the Turbine Hall, the large post-industrial space at the heart of Tate Modern.

Originally part of Bankside Power Station, the hall was built to house electricity-generating machinery. Yi’s installation populates the space with machines once again. Floating in the air, her machines – called aerobes – are based on ocean lifeforms and mushrooms. They re-imagine artificial intelligence, and encourage us to think about new ways machines might inhabit the world. Yi has also created unique scentscapes which change weekly, with odors linked to a specific time in the history of Bankside.
