The Melting House – update

By EM on November 11, 2014 in Art

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.
