Renowned as one of the most important artists of his generation, Tino Sehgal's critical acclaim derives from his radical artistic practice that takes the form of "constructed situations": live encounters between visitors and those enacting the work. Their ephemeral beauty rests in the fleeting specificity of the encounter, where players often engage the visitors with their active participation in constructing the piece. Sehgals abandoning of material production in favor of lived experience is nevertheless achieved with a sensitivity to classical considerations of form, composition and space, grounded not only in the history of dance but also western traditions of sculpture and painting.
