Turner Contemporary, Margate - David Chipperfield

Due to open at the end of the week is Chipperfield's Turner Contemporary in Margate. The particular significance of this project for the practice is it is their first public building in the UK.

The controversial project hit a few problems prior to Chipperfield's involvement. Snøhetta and Spence Associates, the original designers could not keep costs down and was then cancelled before the mantle was passed to Chipperfield.

In the true style of the architect, the building comprises of 6 identical monopitched roofed volumes and will be one of the biggest art galleries outside of London.

Neil's last blog//

I just wanted to officially sign out with my last blog for Campaign [unless they need a guest blogger], with a huge thank you to the team for such a great send off.
I have totally enjoyed every day of working with you all, you are all wonderfully talented and fantastic people.
A lot changes in 2 years of life at Campaign from pug to baby, two great years.
Effie Star will also miss the team and blog readers massively!

All that is left to be said is good luck and as always keep up the fantastic work. You are brilliant.

Over and out. One pug!


Effie, 2009 first day off to work

Project 12:31 by Croix Gagnon & Frank Schott

This is probably the most macabre art project since the supervillianously named Dr.Von Hagens decided to make some friends out of plastinated corpses. [See Body Worlds exhibition].

The process involved starts of with the messy business of slicing up the cadaver of Joseph Paul Jernigan into 1,871 slices, each a millimeter thick all the way through from scalp to the soles of his feet. The cross sections are then photographed and sequenced [head to foot] on a laptop and played through. Still with me?Shot under very slow shutter speed and low light, the laptop is then moved and the result is the ghostly [and wobbly] form of the deceased.

The results below are both beautiful, poignant and gruesome in equal measure.

Furniture by Vincent Duborg

It must be the rebellion in the air that inspired Vincent Duborg to do this furniture installation. Using traditional furniture making techniques such as timber forming and metal casting, he has painstakingly crafted the illusion of chaos. It may be as subtle as a punch in the face, but one has to appreciate the beauty of their craft.
