“Silvery shards of cold light spangle, wink and beckon. Every surface is furred and infested; big blue crystals dangle like cubist bats from the light fittings. Little wonder the flat has been abandoned: you’d move out, too, if the crystals moved in.”
British artist Roger Hiorns is well known for his use of unusual materials in his spectacular art displays. ‘Seizure’ took place in a low rise flat in South London where he used 75,000 litres of copper sulphate to create the mystical, crystalline cave. It will go on display to the public at Yorkshire Sculpture Park this summer 2013.
