Heather Phillipson - Rupture No 1: Blowtorching the Bitten Peach

Heather Phillipson engulfs Tate Britain’s grand central galleries with colour, sound and motion.

Described by Phillipson as a ‘pre-post-historic environment’, the work and its title evoke an abundance of sensations and associations that resist coherence. The artist says she is attempting to ‘cultivate strangeness, and its potential to generate ecstatic experience’.

Phillipson’s work often involves collisions of wildly different imagery, materials and media.
