Freehand and Young Tate's project with artist Dave Evans forms part of the Nam June Paik exhibition at FACT 17 December 2010 - 13 March 2011. Continues at Tate Liverpool.

Join us inside FACT's Media Lounge and take a trip into the world of Nam June Paik as imagined by members of Freehand (FACT's young peoples programme) and Young Tate. The space boasts musical TV screens, warped films and gives you the opportunity to climb inside the television. Take a peek at the screen outside the gallery to see what's happening inside, but beware - in this space even the watcher is being watched!

Members of Freehand and Young Tate have developed this space over a three month period, working with the FACT team and local artist Dave Evans. Throughout the process we have immersed ourselves in the world of Nam June Paik, assuming the roles of researcher, producer, curator and artist to develop the space.

Our society has always worshipped the TV - from the early days of television to today's media saturated world, but Nam June Paik was the first artist to use TV sets in a such an unconventional way. We wanted to reflect this by creating a rough and ready TV experience, drawing direct inspiration from Paik's rebellious streak and his unique relationship with technology. We hope you enjoy it!
