“From the Knees of my Nose to the Belly of my Toes” in seaside town Margate, England, not the result of a dodgy building firm but the latest project from artist Alex Chinneck. An abandoned house on an ordinary street has its front removed and replaced with a shiny new redbrick face which seems to be slowly sliding off, revealing the top floor in a Cleaveland Brown taking a bath kind of move. Describing his work as “largely about surprise – taking something familiar and doing something with it that distorts our perception of the world around us,” take a look at its construction below and the finished house in our gallery.
