Die britische Künstlerin Lucy Sparrow hat für ihre eher ungewöhnliche Kunstausstellung einen leerstehenden Eckladen in Bethnal Green/ East London bezogen. Zu finden sind in ihrem „Corner Shop“ über 4.000 typische Kiosk-Artikel wie z.B. Chips, Schokoriegel, Kaugummis, Getränke, Eiscreme oder Zeitschriften – hergestellt wurden sämtliche Waren von Sparrow allerdings über einen Zeitraum von etwa 7 Monaten in mühsamer Handarbeit… aus Filz-Material(!) Wer sich aktuell in London aufhält, hat noch bis zum Ende des Monats Gelegenheit dem Corner-Shop in der Wellington Row 19 einen persönlichen Besuch abzustatten und sich ein eigenes Bild von dem Wahnsinn zu machen. Hier unten haben wir einige Bilder sowie einen kurzen Clip aus dem Shop. Have fun:

British artist Lucy Sparrow has converted an entire abandoned corner shop in Bethnal Green, east London, into a temporary art exhibition titled The Corner Shop featruring 4,000 hand-sewn felt products. Chips, magazines, candy, frozen dinners, and even the cash register have been faithfully rendered in fabric, a process that took Sparrow about seven months to complete and began with a successful plea for help on Kickstarter. The shop is open to visitors every day this month, and almost all of the items are available for purchase online.
