Step Inside London’s Felt Cornershop

Look closely at a corner shop in East London and you’ll see everything is not as it seems. The Cornershop, opened in a derelict store in Bethnal Green by artist Lucy Sparrow (@sewyoursoul), is actually an art installation which consists of 4,000 items all handmade from felt! From Heinz Baked Beans to Digestive Biscuits, everything in the shop is hand-stitched and the whole shop took Lucy eight months to assemble.

“I wanted to create something that surrounded people completely,” says Lucy, whose first job was in her local corner shop. “I hope this project reminds people just how much the cornershop cements life in local communities.” The installation runs until August 31.

Douglas Coupland’s everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything

Douglas Coupland's show at the Vancouver Art Gallery (@vanartgallery) is highly interactive. “It’s creatively satisfying to crowdsource objects,” the artist says. “In this show I have works made from crowd-sourced Lego, chewing gum, plastic bottle lids and cigarette foil. Anything can be beautiful.”

Visitors to the show have been encouraged to take pictures and share them with the #CouplandVan hashtag. “Much of the show is based on how we’re all collectively changing the way we see the world,” Douglas says. “Not allowing smart-phone photography seemed ridiculous. People focus in on what suits them the most. It’s interesting for me to see which slogans in the Slogan Room are posted the most.”
