We are at Miami Basel as part of the ArtMarkit Pop Up at the Mondrian Hotel

Two of our editions, Yinka Shonibare MBE’s KALEIDOSCOPE and David Shrigley’s BRASS TOOTH will be part of a Pop Up exhibit organised by ArtMarkit at the Mondrian Hotel during Miami Basel. ArtMarkit.com is an e-commerce launched in 2014 that aggregates, promotes and distributes artists’ products from around the world. ArtMarkit.com’s Pop Up has been chosen as one of the Miami Basel top picks by Doreen Deren, co-founder of New York-based Art Production Fund, on Harper’s Bazaar Art Basel Guide.

David Shrigley’s  Brass Tooth is macabre, comical and dysfunctional. By hugely exaggerating the size of the common molar, Shrigley plays on our fear of the dentist’s chair, but confounds us by making it in solid, heavy brass. This edition is available for acquisition on this website.

Kaleidoscope is a new edition by Yinka Shonibare MBE that playfully explores gender stereotypes and power relations: a kaleidoscope in the shape of a phallus, with the body beautifully decorated in the Dutch wax batik patterns the artist is known for, and the head made of highly polished brass.

A video of Yinka Shonibare MBE in conversation with Iwona Blazwick, Director, Whitechapel Gallery filmed on 17 October 2014 where Kaleidoscope is also discussed is now available via this link.
