Andipa Contemporary is proud to announce Slinkachu's forthcoming exhibition, Global Model Village, in London and New York. His installations continue to intrigue his audience and collectors as they appear in the major cities of the world, faithfully captured in this new body of work. The exhibition features a stunning selection of newly released limited edition prints and installations, and celebrates the publication of his third book of the same title, published by Macmillan (UK) and Penguin (USA).

“The world is going to the dogs. You read about it in the papers every day...The good old days are long gone and the only thing to look forward to is a steady decline, leading to the inevitable apocalypse...But there are more immediate concerns for us, because the train is late and it’s already 8.45 a.m. The baby was awake all night and the kids are bunking off school. Letters from the bank are stacking up, unopened…These are the real dramas, this is the real news...Despite all our differences, this is what unites us, the ‘little people’.” (Slinkachu, Global Model Village)

Working his way around the globe, Slinkachu’s miniature installations focus on the common denominators of humankind, the dramas of hope and tragedy, loneliness and humour amongst the millions living in the metropolis.

The works of Slinkachu have been recently exhibited in museum shows in Germany, Finland and Denmark along with projects in the V&A Museum and Courtauld Institute.
