Would You Feel Safe In A Building Like This?

British artist Alex Chinneck has completed his first permanent public installation – a 10-tonne ripped page made from 4,000 bricks.

The site of Assembly London – a campus of offices, retail units and restaurants situated in Hammersmith – is the canvas for this monumental work of art entitled ‘Six Pins and Half a Dozen Needles’. The installation is a tribute to the publisher that had called the area home for twenty years.

Chinneck explains: “I try to introduce sculptural interventions in unexpected contexts, heightening a sense of discovery when you encounter them. With this in mind, the archetypal nature of the building’s upper elevation makes it a perfect platform for surprise.”
