Charles LeDray’s highly anticipated Artangel commission MENS SUITS, which opened at an old Fire Station in London’s Marylebone in July, has been extended until 18 October. The project, comprising tableaux of diminutive hand-made men’s clothing – suits, shirts, ties, gloves – all different, and all intimately detailed, is a tour de force of meticulous craftsmanship and careful composition.

“Extraordinary.” The Observer
“Strikingly original, frankly unmissable.” The London Evening Standard

MENS SUITS has been in the making for the past three years and is LeDray’s first major presentation in Europe.

SEIZURE sculptor Roger Hiorns’s brilliant blue crystal cave within a low-rise modernist housing development near the Elephant &Castle, south London, re-opened in July and continues until 18 October. Blue copper sulphate crystals cover every surface of the space – walls, ceilings, floor and bath – creating a strange and compelling new world.

SEIZURE earned Roger Hiorns a nomination for this year’s Turner Prize. The winner of the Prize is to be announced on 7 December on Channel 4.
