Walkways is a Tate Modern collaborative commission.
'For this project FrenchMottershead chose to work with individuals who showed varying degrees of control or conscious resistance, amidst the urban and socio-economic environments of their lives. Following the participants on their normal walks, FM explored different ways in which they could intervene in to these every day acts and reframe them in to a performance which posed questions about where these people want to go and how they want to get there. These collaborations aim to transform everyday actions into conscious performances, which are personal, poetic, and political and will resonate with most people’s experience of urban life'.
'Rebecca French and Andrew Mottershead are London-based artists whose work looks at the conventions of social exchange and its relationship to the public and private realms in which they are played out'.
