Put your face in the hole is the name of Stuff Happens Here’s stall for Fairground at Tate Exchange. It takes as inspiration the photo-opportunity amusement in which fairground visitors can poke their face through a screen to temporarily adopt a new body or be placed in another landscape.

The stall is made-up of a set of structures the group built with artist Dylan Shipton, which emphasise what you see when you put your face through the hole, as much as how you look. Through specially designed ‘viewing holes’, visitors will be invited to watch short films selected by the group from the British Film Institute’s Britain Online archive to reflect their interests as they have developed over the project. Visitors are invited to drop in to see us at any point on Friday 14 April.

Part of Fairground – with Christ Church University, the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of KentPeople United and Valleys Kids
