In this work, artist Harrell Fletcher invited a busker to take his performances from the tube stations and streets of London into the Tate gallery. Harrell Fletcher’s work often takes the form of socially engaged collaborative and interdisciplinary projects. With ‘Where I’m Calling From’, buskers shift from playing to a local London audience to performing on a global online stage.
By moving a musician from tube station, to gallery space, and then back out to the world through the web, Harrell Fletcher aims to question value, and the influence of the internet.
This performance was originally played live, online to the BMW Tate Live: Performance Room’s global audience on 28 June 2012.
