In Limbo | Tate Modern Dec 2018

What are you waiting for….

We were delighted to collaborate with Jacek Ludwig Scarso and the Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design on In Limbo. A week-long participatory experience, conceived and led by Jacek reflects on the meaning of waiting. Take a seat and share with us what you’re waiting for… or simply relax, and just wait.
Taking over the 5th floor of the Blavatnik Building for a week in December we partnered with our friend at  A-VR  to curated a VR waiting room journey which complimented the experience. We hope to take In Limbo to other locations so watch this space!
