A Pound of flesh for 50p in south London, England by Alex Chinneck

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: Alex Chinneck

‘A Pound of Flesh for 50p’, by Alex Chinneck is a life size construction of a house made entirely from wax bricks that has been gradually melting since October, as part of London Bankside’s MERGE Festival, celebrating art and science. The house is due to finish melting this week and will leave a pile of wax with just the roof on the pavement. The artwork explores the science of melting points and celebrates the history of an area that once housed the largest candle-making factory in Southwark. Architectural features such as double-glazed windows, drainpipes and a tiled roof will enhance the installation and bring it to life.

The Alex Monroe Studio, Snowsfields is a new jewellery studio, sited within a stone’s throw of The Shard in the Bermondsey Conservation Area, providing a showcase for Alex’s growing international business. Consisting of a handcrafted 3-storey addition to an existing Edwardian single-storey shop front, the building provides workshop and studio space, alongside a boutique store, with meeting and dining spaces on the upper levels as well as a roof terrace with views towards London Bridge. The new building operates as a bespoke ‘bookend’ to the original terrace, creating a strong prow that completes the street frontage. The design maintains the continuity of the shop fronts, whilst the additional floors form a separate metal clad volume that sits lightly above.
