In our last post, we featured ‘A Pound of Flesh for 50p’, aka The Melting House, by artist Alex Chinneck. This week, we paid a return visit to see how it is progressing and were stunned to see it is now down to a single storey. The melt is well and truly underway, and rivulets of wax pour from the house. Created for Bankside’s MERGE Festival, there is more information and a video here.
A Pound of Flesh for 50p (The Melting House) is on 24hrs a day until 18th November 2014. Find it at 40 Southwark Street, London SE1 9HP.
