Tobias Madison’s first solo project in the UK was presented in the not-for-profit programme at Frieze Art Fair in London. Madison created a dismantled room at Frieze London, activated by sensory and microbic technology. This room, based on Madison’s previous Frankenstein installation (Supportico Lopez, 2013), became both the stage for the monster and the monster itself, as an automated network of pumps circulated liquid at certain moments in a form of theatrical drama. This work presents only a glimpse of the ‘monster’ as it is designed to resist the visitor’s presence.
