Carsten Höller Decision Tubes gives Museo Tamayo a fresh perspective

Visitors to Mexico City’s Museo Tamayo these days may find themselves on a higher path, courtesy of an elevated intallation by artist Carsten Höller that brings a new perspective to the museum’s brutalist architecture. The interactive net and steel tunnels – entitled Decision Tubes (2019) – anchors the Stockholm-based artist’s first Latin American survey, which presents a decade-spanning selection from his oeuvre.

Suspended in the light-filled atrium, the labyrinthine web (expanding on Höller’s Decision Corridors first exhibited at London’s Hayward Gallery in 2015) dovetails into various scenarios. Museum-goers may find themselves going through a window or arriving at a different exhibition altogether based on their decisions. Those opting for the roof will encounter a giant mushroom alongside the mesmerising view overlooking Chapultepec Park, where the 37-year-old museum resides.

Walking through a team of installers busy with final touches hours before his opening, Höller notes that he aims beyond a physical connection in audience participation. ‘Instead of looking at a portrait that strives to contain emotions, the viewers altogether witness real human reactions to artworks on each others’ faces,’ the German artist explains. ‘I am after the real depiction of human emotion.’
