London brick (cockney key)
100 x 76 cms
This one got in my head after taking my kids to Tate modern when they were little (around 5 and 8) and was asked what the pile of bricks were there for and if they were doing building work. What can you say?
Also did you know they’re not the original bricks either? The artist used the original ones building an extension, and when there was interest he just bought more and sold them on, What a business model.
We were asked to leave after 20 minutes as my 5 year old peered over the edge of a skip that was in the middle of a room. It wasn’t just a skip it was an ART skip. The guard Truly believed she could manage to knock it over. It weighed about two ton, so off we went to look at dinosaurs. So this one is a Fuck you to that art world.
Here’s a London brick that took 70 hours to create.
