slinkachu: the global village

‘the food chain’

slinkachu: global model village andipa gallery, london september 27th through to october 28th

andipa gallery presents london-based artist slinkachu to show new work as part of his exhibition ‘global model village’ – set to coincide with the worldwide publication of his third book of the same title. well-known for his quirky miniature scenes, slinkachu creates tiny dioramas that can be found in doorways and cracks along streets around the world. the pint-sized installations often represent common incidences in daily life, from a tiny mother and child bustling through a dusty city in cape town to an inch-high woman pole-dancing around a lamp post in the hong kong red light district – each one depicting the ubiquitous dramas of hope and tragedy, loneliness and humour that percolate our own lives. documented through the medium of photography, the pieces call attention to the sociological, political and economical plights of human kind – adeptly revealing the heart of what it means to be human.
