Mary Reid Kelley, in collaboration with her partner Patrick Kelley, presented a new work 'This is Offal', inspired by Thomas Hood’s 1844 poem The Bridge of Sighs in which the narrator laments the apparent suicide of a young woman, whose body he pulls from the Thames.
The performance is followed by a Q&A with the curator Catherine Wood at 08:32 including questions from the audience received via Tate's YouTube, Twitter and Facebook profiles.
