THE DnA FACTORY MRSS are proud to have contributed to Interpreted Identities for the London Festival of Architecture & BOST [Bankside Open Spaces Trust]
From June 1st-30th 2018 the London Festival of Architecture is hosting over 500 events across the city exploring this year’s theme of identity. From exhibitions to family events, walking tours, debates and stunning architectural installations, there’s something for everyone.
In celebration of the centenary year of women’s suffrage, within the theme of identity, BOST presents ‘Interpreted Identities’ – a series of dedicated installations or ‘follies’ created by a selection of London’s architecture design practices and artists, taking inspiration from extraordinary female figures – past and present.
Constructed from salvaged materials, found objects, unrelated parts bolted together, echoing themes in Mary Shelley’s most famous novel, Frankenstein. A story unfolds through a series of symbols, starting with the alchemical, the golden head representing imagination, creativity and possibility, travelling through elements of society and expectation towards the key to growth and enlightenment.
The Sculpture Shack/Models For Monuments
Private View on Tuesday October 3rd 2017
6pm until 9pm
Chelsea Arts Club, 143 Old Church Street, London, SW3 6EB
Welcome to The Sculpture Shack! A site specific dystopian summer house fabricated from salvaged materials, containing a series of our most recent sculpture/assemblages and collage, under the banner ‘Models For Monuments’.
This is the first time in the Chelsea Art Clubs history that a member has designed and built a specific space for sculpture and the hope is that The Sculpture Shack will remain as a functioning temporary exhibition space for other members and their guests to use and enjoy following the show.
The work within is also constructed from collections of found objects transformed and merged with cast and original sculpted pieces, creating independently functioning organisms, despite the various individual elements. Themes concern reflections on the political, cultural and social ramifications of being here and now.
Exhibition runs until March 2018
