If you like your art a little more interactive than canvases sitting in a frame and sculptures on a plinth, The Squash is for you. Created for the annual Tate Britain Commission, which invites contemporary British artists to create new artwork in response to the grand space of the Duveen Galleries, this year's immersive installation combines performance and sculpture by 2016 Turner Prize nominee Anthea Hamilton.

The artist, in tandem with her good friend, Loewe creative director and designer Jonathan Anderson, has created seven somewhat surreal, spiffy and spoofy costumes to be worn by the cast. Hamilton has transformed the heart of Tate Britain into an elaborate stage for the continuous six-month performance of a single character, dressed in a colourful squash-like costume.
