Artist Bio

Tino Sehgal’s radical and captivating way of making art leaves no material traces. The artist refuses all documentation, the works remaining a mystery to those who have not directly experienced them. Born in London in 1976, the Berlin-based artist, who originally studied political economics and dance, constructs ‘situations’ by orchestrating interpersonal encounters through dance, voice and movement. His works elicit a different kind of viewer, one who cannot be a passive spectator, they bear a responsibly to construct and contribute to the realisation of the actual piece.
