Alex Chinneck: Open to the public

Alex Chinneck’s public artwork has been transformed an unused building into a surreal sculpture. This building seems to unzip, revealing a shabby and deteriorating interior. This 26-foot artwork pays homage to the building’s history of leather and textile manufacturer. The piece took two months to be completed.

He comments:

“There is a history of textile that fed into the language of the zip,” “The building presented a good opportunity because facing demolition, it gave us the sculptural freedom to open it up to the elements.”

Monumental in ambition and impact, his interventions animate the places where they stand. Speaking on his latest artwork, he also comments, “I design playful public artworks for everyone to experience and enjoy, turning every day into the extraordinary”.

The address of this temporary installation is Brundrett House, Tannery Lane, Ashfield, TN23 1PN. Make sure to catch it while you can.
