Tino Sehgal: Yet untitled


exhibition Details

Yet untitled is a powerful work in movement and sound from internationally renowned contemporary artist Tino Sehgal.

Considered as one of the most highly regarded contemporary and live artists of his generation, Tino Sehgal's artistic practice has been shaped by his formative studies in dance and economics. It consists of live interactions between participants enacting the work and the visitorship, which he refers to as ‘constructed situations.’

Based on Sehgal’s choreography and compositions, Yet untitled is presented by two to three dancers and singers live in our atrium every day for six weeks. As Tino Sehgal’s work is not recorded, the only way to view the work is to see it in person. This ensures his art is observed in real-time and lives in the memories of those present. The display also celebrates the first acquisition of a live work for the Gallery’s collection.

As part of the exhibition, Tino Sehgal has also curated a selection of sculpture from the Gallery’s collection, which complements and sets the scene for live encounters with the work within the Gallery. 

Yet untitled was first presented in the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013, where Sehgal received the Golden Lion award for best artist. It was acquired by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki for its collection in 2020 with support from Auckland Contemporary Art Trust.

Yet untitled is proudly presented in association with Dame Jenny Gibbs and Auckland Contemporary Art Trust.
