A nice mixture of genre-established artist Slinkachu, a snow globe and protest culture in small: James Cauty created short riot scene miniatures in jam jars and characterized them as »Greenpeace Armageddon Factoid Riot« or »French Extremist Students Contained«. In addition to the sculptures the artist made a film for every scene. Both is shown here. Btw. Cauty is best known as one half of the hitmaking duo The KLF and as co-founder of The Orb.
Alan Wolfson creates handmade miniature sculptures of urban environments. Complete with complex interior views and lighting effects. The pieces are usually not exact representations of existing locations, but rather a combination of details from many different locations along with much of the detail from the artist’s imagination. There are never people present, only things they have left behind; garbage, graffiti, or a tip on a diner table, all give the work a sense of motion and a storyline.
