Untitled (Tate) was commissioned to form part of the opening displays of Tate Modern when it opened in 2000. It’s collection of everyday objects, resembling a workshop, were each individually handmade and in part designed to mimic the working environment of the Tate Modern gallery prior to it’s opening.

Their use of uncannily realistic objects plays on notions of the Readymade and has been present in their work through pieces such as Floss (Raft) 1982 and Tisch (Table) 1992.
