Commissioned by and winner of The Place Prize 2013, Athletes is a work on competition viewed as tension between man and machine. The work features three enigmatic figures dressed by fashion designer Brooke Roberts, shifting from solidarity to cruelty in a sparsely beautiful futuristic landscape created by the atmospheric, eye-slitting lights of Lucy Hansom and Michael Mannion.
I wanted to create a dark piece using brightness, to build an engine using bodies, to show hate using love. Here things constantly transform into their opposite. Riccardo Buscarini
