Lucy Sparrow – The Bourdon Street Chemist at Lyndsey Ingram Gallery – “The Bourdon Street Chemist by British artist Lucy Sparrow is the artist’s seventh major installation. It marks her return to the UK after four years of exhibiting her faux-reality felt worlds in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Beijing”.
“Created with Sparrow’s characteristic painstaking research and attention to detail, the walls of this Mayfair gallery are transformed into a fully-stocked chemist, handmade completely in felt. In this interactive performance-art piece each and every hand-painted artwork is sold straight off the felted shelf to customers who can purchase the full range of felt pharmaceuticals by the white-coated Sparrow herself”.
The show runs in physical sense from April 19th until May 3rd, there is an online viewing room open now and you can make an advance booking to actually visit the chemist view the website. The Lyndsey Ingram Gallery is at 20 Bourdon Street, London W1K 3PL
