We are delighted to introduce the Autumn Edition of Hang-Up Collections, which may just be our strongest collection yet! On show is a varied selection of vibrant originals and limited editions from some of the world's leading urban and contemporary names. Artists exhibited include Banksy, Harland Miller, David Shrigley, Mark Powell, Giles Walker, Magnus Gjoen and Bonnie and Clyde. We are also delighted to be showcasing, for the first time, works by the critically acclaimed Nina Saunders.

Nina Saunders

Ever wanted to fall down the rabbit hole? Enter the world of Nina Saunders, where armchairs melt to the ground, deers wait at the salon and teacups are too heavy to lift.

Saunders is a multi-media Danish artist who lives and works in London, and is known for her uncanny sculptural transformations of reclaimed furniture. By meticulously manipulating and distorting the shapes of her found materials she turns each previously owned household item into a redundant object. Her ambitious creations are not only extremely witty, but also boast an elegant and mysterious character.

Saunders’ works can be found in the collections of various UK institutions including the Hayward Gallery, Saatchi Gallery and Victoria & Albert Museum, as well as numerous international museums and galleries.
Saunders has worked closely with Hermes Flagship Stores, New York, Beverly Hills and Dubai for the last couple of years along with her large scale solo show ‘I Heard a Voice in the Midst of the Four Beasts’, at Kunsten Museum for Contemporary Art, Denmark, she continues to show widely on the Danish gallery scene.
