Charline von Heyl and curator Gavin Delahunty walk through a new exhibition of von Heyl's paintings on view at Tate Liverpool through May 27, 2012.

Von Heyl remarks: "What I want to do with the painting is establish this relationship of now… that you are actually in the moment in front of a painting and something happens. What I want to happen is that the space between the painting and the viewer gets activated, and it activates the viewer to form a relationship, so the painting almost hovers in front of itself, between the viewer and the canvas."
