The Tate Modern is to restage sculpture that sent public ‘mad’ in 1971.
Almost four decades after the Tate staged a ‘seminal’interactive sculpturethat left many women withsplinters, it is to house an updated version of the structure again.
But this timehealth and safetyhas been called in to ensure nobody is injured exploringRobert Morris‘s giant workBodyspacemotionthings.
Back in 1971 the public ‘went bloody mad’ – according to one contemporary report in The Daily Telegraph – when told that they could actually climb all over thesculptureby the pioneering American artist.
The idea of people being allowed to touch a work of art, rather than just staring at it, was completely new at the time. However, the visitors’ ‘exuberance’, as it was described, led to a number ofinjuriesand it had to be closed after four days.
Michael Compton, Keeper of Exhibitions at the time, said staff ended up ‘pickingsplintersout of the backsides’ of miniskirt-wearing girls who were intent on sliding down therough plywoodused to cover the structure.
This time the safety-consciousTateis taking no chances.
