    «I wanted to create a dark piece using brightness, to build an engine using bodies, to show hate using love. Here things constantly transform into their opposite».
    Riccardo Buscarini

    Winner of The Place Prize 2013, Athletes is a work on competition viewed as tension between man and machine. The work features three enigmatic figures shifting from solidarity to cruelty in a sparsely beautiful futuristic landscape created by the atmospheric, eye-slitting lights of Lucy Hansom and Michael Mannion, while the costumes were especially designed and created by science-inspired fashion designer Brooke Roberts.
