The Power Changes at TateDecember, 2015
For the Late at Tate Britain October event, two long time collaborators, Jae Huh and Ronin Cho worked together to create a 10 minutes video titled ‘The Power Changes’ to be projected on the north west side of the octagon. Through the work the duo shows the status changes of the power of portrait by time. They took their inspiration and metaphors from 3 Tate Britain’s rooms; 1540, 1900 and 1960, then mixed it with their own idea of ‘power and status.’ The square wall in octagon is their frame for the video portrait as if portraits paintings are in square picture frame. The head, which is a central part in the video represents powerful figures in many portraits that can be seen in the rooms.
