Visitors to the Carsten Höller retrospective at the Southbank Centre’s Hayward Gallery will be able to enjoy a 15-metre joyride down giant spiral slides that were commissioned for the exhibition. Weeeee!
The slides were a huge hit in 2006 when they took over the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, sending gallery visitors on a spiralling ride from the top floor all the way down to the ground. The slides are back and they’ll be set up at the nearby Southbank Centre for an exhibition opening later this year.
Carsten Höller’s show, called Carsten Höller: Decision will also feature Flying Machines which will be installed on one of the Hayward Gallery’s outdoor terraces. New works in the retrospective includes Moving Beds, which features two robotic beds which mirror each other’s movements as they roam around the galleries.
This will be one exhibition you won’t want to miss, whether you’re in it for the conceptual art or just a ride down one of these slides!
