What does a melting house and bending bricks have in common? Alex Chinneck. The London-based artist and designer creates a variety of pain staking, cleverly engineered objects and installations. His most recent endeavor From the Knees of my Nose to the Belly of my Toes is the unexpected sight of a buildings brick façade melting, with its top exposed revealing its abandoned interior. It’s a spectacle to see and that’s what Chinneck is hoping,“Cliftonville is a very poor area referred to as being ‘up the hill’, and the culture and the arrival of artists hasn’t quite reached up the hill yet. I was drawn to Cliftonville because it’s an area where the culture hasn’t reached and I think public art too often forgets its responsibility to the public.”
