The following images are of an installation made on Friday 20 June inside Burlington House, Piccadilly, to coincide with the book launch of 'Bipolar'. I took one of the lumps of ice I brought back from Antarctica out of its lodgings inside the British Antarctic Surveys freezer in Cambridge and let it not so gently melt over the course of the evening. It was acoustically wired up by sound engineers Lee Patterson and Mark Hornsby, and produced uncomfortably loud interruptions as the ancient air kept locked under pressure by the ice belched into the London air. I intend to reuse the meltwater in another project I'm working on. The cabinet was recycled from an exhibition held in the British museum.
George Polke is pleased to announce a series of exhibitions at 3.5 Frederick Terrace, our new E8 project space.
Every three weeks, two artists will be invited to each exhibit just one work.
SALONS held on the last day of each exhibition will be an integral part of the series, continuing the conversation. Please join us for talks by the artists and discussion with invited commentators.
The series will start with a video by Anne Brodie and a sculpture by Laura Morrison.
