Lucy McKenzie in A Bigger Splash from The Tate, London, England
Are these paintings or a stage set? Artist Lucy McKenzie presents us with an elegant room, complete with fake marbling, trompe l'oeil radiators and the scuffs and stains of years of inhabitation.
This imaginary room was inspired by Muriel Spark's 1963 novella The Girls of Slender Means, and was used as a back-drop for a recent film. McKenzie talks to TateShots about challenging expectations of what a painting can be. Lucy McKenzie's work is shown in A Bigger Splash, a new exhibiton at Tate Modern that explores the relationship between painting and performance art.
