Roger Hiorns - Seizure (2008)

A condemned London apartment transformed into a copper sulphate chamber.

"After reinforcing the walls and ceiling and covering them in plastic sheeting, 80,000 litres of a copper sulphate solution were poured in from a hole in the ceiling. After a few weeks the temperature of the solution fell and the crystals began to grow. The remaining liquid was pumped back out and sent for special chemical recycling."

The sculpture ‘Alias’ seems like a strange indefinable creature. It was created for the Orangery Palace Rheda by Miriam Jonas. In forty seconds rhythm the structure made of transparent PVC is filled with air from a blower. Once the fan is turned off, air escapes from the Sculpture and almost breathing, it seems as if it is has come to life.
