Because I like to plan things and book things. So far, we’ve got Bridget Christie, Susan Calman, Henning Wehn, James Acaster, Alex Horne (in all his various permutations) and DAVID O’DOHERTY (ahem). I’m devastated that Helm is doing his shows before I even arrive, but I’m trying not to dwell. Instead, I’m focusing on stuff like how cool it will be to sketch with Phill Jupitus at the National Gallery.
I don’t know how I’ll bear three more months of anticipation.
Nick Meek - Sony Bravia, 2014
Artist’s statement: "Sony Bravia has been a bench mark in quality advertising for years now and I’m very happy to have been chosen by McCanns Worldwide to shoot this campaign for them. We flew to a volcano in Costa Rica where It took the inhabitants of an entire village a full week to pluck all the flower petals…. enough to fill two huge lorries! With the help of a special effects team the petals were blown and exploded through our landscapes creating hugely detailed vista which echoes the extreme detail of Sony’s new 4k tv."

The work of Dav Wong
Hong Kong-based photographer Dav Wong captures beautiful shots from the around the world.
Statues are often idealized works of art. They are ideological, political or religious representations and attempt to turn their subjects into fascinating, eternal figures. Even when erected to keep alive the memory of a single person, a statue that lasts many generations will eventually establish itself as a symbol for the community.
Statues are even more influential when they are monumental. An edifice can be said to be monumental when it is unusual, extraordinary and physically imposing. It has to be abnormal — as exceptional as the political or religious power itself — and also inseparable from its symbolic aspects.
The series “Colosses” is a study of the landscapes that embrace monumental commemorative statues.
