Showing: Lucy Sparrow – “Sparrow Mart” @ The Standard, DTLA

The Standard hotel in Downtown LA is currently hosting a big-scale West Coast debut of British artist Lucy Sparrow. As her fifth fully-felted art installation, Sparrow Mart opened doors on August 1st and will stay open for business until the end of the month. We say “open for business” because of the fact that this art installation is a fully functional supermarket, offering a wide range of everyday supplies entirely made from felt and fabric. From bubblegum, fruit and veggies, to different packaging of favorite snacks, […]

Recap: Joakim Ojanen – “Year of the Dog” @ Richard Heller Gallery

An exhibition entitled Year of the Dog recently closed at the Richard Heller Gallery in Los Angeles, their second solo from Joakim Ojanen. Featuring a comprehensive selection of the Stockholm-based artist’s ceramics, bronzes, charcoal drawings, and oil paintings, the show focuses in on Ojanen’s cast of characters that seem to be taken from a children’s book or Adult Swim cartoon. The paintings are somewhat abstract and the sculptures are loose, expertly done with a child-like innocence yet unsettling at the same time. Photo credit: Artsy, Richard McKinnon, and Ethan […]

Showing: Alex Chinneck – “Open To The Public” (England)

Over the weekend, another mind-boggling installation was completed by Alex Chinneck in England entitled Open To The Public. Building on the British artist’s series of impossible architectural creations, the abandoned 1960s office building (Brundett House, Tannery Lane, Ashford, Kent, TN23 1PN) was transformed with two enormous zippers “unzipping” the structure. Head over to see it soon if you are in the UK as it will be demolished shortly… Photo credit: Mark Wilmot & Charles Emerson (via Designboom). Discuss Alex Chinneck here.

Showing: KAWS – “HOLIDAY” Floating Companion @ Seokchon Lake (Seoul)

Judging from these photos, the long teased project from KAWS in Seoul has finally launched with his inflatable companion deployed in Seokchon Lake. Returning to Korea (see 2016) with a 92-foot-long (28 meters) floating HOLIDAY version of his signature character (and associated merch), the Brooklyn-based artist has harnessed the perfect relaxed vibe for this summertime installation.
