Today we’re going to present you the first public installation by the British artist Alex Chinneck, a 10-tonne ripped brick facade made from 4,000 bricks.  The artwork has been installed on the site of Assembly London, a campus of offices, retail units and restaurants situated in Hammersmith.

The sculpture has been designed to be placed 20-metres high and to appear as if part of the building’s existing red-brick facade has cracked in two. Until the final work, Chinneck spent month trying to recreate the effect of a ripped page from a book.

“I try to introduce sculptural interventions in unexpected contexts, heightening a sense of discovery when you encounter them,” he told. “With this in mind, the archetypal nature of the building’s upper elevation makes it a perfect platform for surprise.”

“The work looks to energizee the architecture by reconfiguring and reinvigorating what was already materially present, albeit seemingly,” added Chinneck, whose previous sculptures include a huge upside down pylon and a Christmas tree trapped in a giant ice cube.

The two parts of the 12-metre-high sculpture lean away from the building as if about to fall down. Chinneck set the artwork just two layers of bricks deep, to lend the piece a “cartoon-like quality”.
