A Building In Hammersmith Has Been Ripped In Half In The Name Of Art

share on:

Alex Chinneck‘s first permanent piece of public artwork has been unveiled and it’s already causing quite a stir.

The rather uninspiring building that’s been used as Chinneck’s ‘canvas’ hasn’t actually been harmed in any way, so you can stop worrying now. His latest piece has transformed a red brick building in Hammersmith that used to look like this:

A cartoon-style imagining of a building ripped in half. Chinneck’s latest piece is titled ‘Six pins and half a dozen needles’ and it took a year of labour, over 1,000 stainless steel parts and 5,000 specially made bricks to create.

You can find Chinneck’s latest mega-sculpture at Assembly London, 77 Fulham Palace Road, London, W6 8JA.
