Would You Feel Safe In A Building Like This?

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

Titled Six Pins and a Half Dozen Needles, the artwork has been installed on the site of Assembly London – a campus of offices, retail units and restaurants situated in Hammersmith.

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.”
