Tug of War




Bank of England, London


Images of this new installation, left outside of The Bank of England which will be shown by Andipa Gallery at Multiplied 2014 art fair held at Christies in London. Titled Tug of War, this new image represents the age-old battle between the 'haves' and the 'have-nots', summed up in a tug of war over a dropped £10 note.

To compliment this theme you can view the image at the show as a very limited, 120x180cm aluminium-mounted, glossy 'elite' print. Conversely, theres also the 'people's' version, printed in a tabloid newspaper format using traditional newspaper stock and ink with all the imperfections and idiosyncrasies you'd expect from newsprint. If you haven't got the funds and the palatial space for the elite version, the newsprint version is available for only £10 (of course!) and is an unlimited, unsigned edition for sale to anyone at the show, until it closes.

Also released by Andipa is a 120x80cm version in an edition of 10 and a 80x53cm version in an edition of 20, all signed and numbered.

So pop along and pick up your copy - the show runs from 17th-20th October at Christies in London. Entry is free and you can also see a selection of my other works there too courtesy Andipa Gallery.

Alpining


Fulham, London

I often get asked how long my installations last on the streets - but apart from a few exceptions, I don’t often check them and so don’t really know. This one, shot as part of a commission for NZZ Folio (a Swiss broadsheet supplement) is one of those exceptions. I shot it in September 2013 and two months later it was still intact, with one little intruder. A month after that and everything was still there too. The last time I passed by was March 2014, a few weeks ago, and all but one of the figures remained (with another little intruder - see if you can spot him!).
Which is all a round-about way of saying; sometimes the installations last quite a while!

Fez








I don't often post images of installations that are created for display in a gallery setting, so here are a few of one created at the end of 2013 for an exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey.

Why is it so hard to find a job? - Construction Worker























Université de Nanterre, Paris, France

I've just got back from Paris where I was helping to promote ReAct Paris, a conference organised by the European Parliament to tackle the problems of unemployment in Europe, particularly youth unemployment, which in some parts of Europe stand close to a miserable 30%. 

I was leaving miniature workers hidden around the streets of Paris and asking the question "Why is it so hard to find a job?"


The following installations were all shot in Paris for the event. 


Find out more about the conference at
