Michael Landy


Art Bin is a major new installation by Michael Landy transforming the South London Gallery into a container for the disposal of works of art. Landy famously destroyed all his possessions in his 2001 installation Break Down and this enormous work similarly raises issues around disposal, destruction, value and ownership. Over the course of the exhibition, as people take up Landy’s invitation to discard their art works, it forms what he describes as “a monument to creative failure”. Anyone can apply to dispose of art works in Art Bin by bringing them to the gallery or applying online at www.art-bin.co.uk.
