A mAcro Photo by Slinkachu
An exhibition of work by Slinkachu , an artist who installs tiny figurines around the city, has opened at Cosh Gallery in London.
Scenes created have included miniature dear grazing alongside
cigarette buts, a man standing by a cash machine and a tiny woman using
a post box, positioned next to the real thing.
Slinkachu modifies and paints figurines made for model train sets
before installing them in streets and parks, where he photographs the
scene and leaves the characters behind.
The exhibition is open 28 August - 20 September. A book of the
designer’s work, entitled ‘Little People in the City’ with a foreword
by Will Self, will be launched on 5 September.
Here’s some more information from Cosh Gallery:
GROUND ZERO: Little People in the City is the first solo show from
Slinkachu featuring all new works at Cosh Gallery, Soho, this August.
Slinkachu has taken street art to a new scale, painstakingly
hand-painting tiny characters that live in a world that’s too small for
us to always notice beneath our feet.
His street installations are constructed in all sorts of public
spaces, the portrayal of little lives that mirror our own. Working in
miniature opens up the city landscapes in unexpected ways and this is
explored in Ground Zero where he literally brings you down to a new
Ground Zero is both street art installations and photography. The
two go hand in hand with thesubsequent photograph uncovering his hidden
world. The show depicts the little fears and anxieties of city life and
the general feeling of being alone or insignificant in a large city.
While the scenes reflect the loneliness and melancholy of urban life
there is always an underlying sense of humour and feeling of empathy.
