Things Got Flipped-Turned Upside Down

upside-down

For his site-specific installation, “Miner on the Moon,” artist Alex Chinneck turned a London building upside down. “I’m conscious that when a person walks through the doors of an art gallery they do so through choice, but people do not make that choice when presented with public sculpture,” Alex says. “I wanted to create an artwork therefore that offered spectacle but was simultaneously subtle and by using the material and architectural language of the district the artwork has the ability to disappear into its environment without dominating it.”

John and George

A new short film by Will Robson-Scott

“John and his dog George are a fixture on Shoreditch High Street year round. His drawings of the east London land marks and portraits of George provide John with an escape from his demons. His past is tainted with living rough and addiction. George is Johns closest companion, he and drawing are Johns one constant in life.”

In the attic of the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, a unique collection had been lying forgotten, untouched for more than 50 years. Consisting of graphic design journals, cases of metal and wood type, books, correspondences between world-famous designers, type catalogues and printing machines dating back to the last century, the collection is now on view in Norway. If you cannot make it to Oslo, be sure to check out the interactive website, which includes images and videos that flip through select books.
