Getty Station

A really exceptional art space has opened in the middle of Chelsea on the West Side of the borough of Manhattan a while ago. Gallerist and art collector Michael Shvo bought an abandoned gas station where he has installed a temporary art exhibition. »Kids don’t really see sheep in the middle of New York at a gas station,« Shvo said and picked up Francois-Xavier Lalanne’s sheep sculptures. The installation is one of many planned artworks that will appear in the location before Shvo finishes constructing a luxury building in place of the former gas station. Business as usual what we might call.

Cars with no wheels, formed by French photographer Renaud Marion. His retro-futuristic Air Drive series is every engineer’s dream. And don’t forget: Flying cars require a pilot license.

Labelstore

Three in one: Labelstore is a sportswear fake from 1997 up to now. The project places fashion in the context of mainstream and globalization, a sleek alternative to the mass consumption of clothing and brands. The first store was opened in an abandoned house in Antwerpen in winter 1997. The customers could purchase an unlabeled item of clothing, which was then branded at the checkout counter by choosing a favoured logo.
