Langlands & Bell 

http://www.langlandsandbell.com/

Works nearing completion in the studio for our solo exhibition “Langlands & Bell 1986 - 96” curated by Jonathan Watkins at the Serpentine Gallery, London 22 years ago. The diptych on the wall combines a model of the interior of Dom Hans van der Laan’s beautiful Abbey Church of St Benedict at Vals in Holland with an aerial view of the Ka’ba in Mecca screen printed on glass, while Interlocking Chair stands in the foreground.

Making a model of the massive Alibaba HQ at Hangzhou in China by Hassell…part of the installation for our forthcoming solo exhibition “Internet Giants : Masters of the Universe” at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, curated by Jonathan Watkins. Opening on 21 March the exhibition marks 40 years of our collaboration. The last time we worked with Jonathan was a solo exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery, London 22 years ago. It’s great to work together again. #workinprogress #contemporaryart #sculpture #installation #artandarchitecture @ikongallery @serpentineuk @alibaba.group @hassell_studio

Works nearing completion in the studio for our solo exhibition “Langlands & Bell 1986 - 96” at the Serpentine Gallery, London 22 years ago curated by Jonathan Watkins. The circular table is about to be charred black all over before being fitted with optically clear glass surfaces, vitrine-like.

A detail from our sculpture “The British Museum” (1987) where three wood and glass encased “books” contain three scale models. This is the interior of The Round Reading Room, with the readers tables radiating out from the librarians desks and catalogues at the centre of the room. Built with cast-iron, concrete and glass, and the most up to date ventilation systems it was considered a masterpiece of mid C19 technology. Interestingly the dome (with the Pantheon’s occulous replaced by windows) is made out of papier-maché. When in use as a library the shelves lining the wall of the drum accommodated 3 million books. A universe of knowledge. @thecmoa @thebritishmuseum #pantheon #panopticon #surveillance #observation #scopophilia #architecture #contemporaryart #conceptualart #sculpture #prison #library

A detail from our sculpture “The British Museum” (1987) where three wood and glass encased “books” contain three scale models. Also inspired by the classical principals of the Pantheon in Rome (and the designs of Jermey Bentham) this is a Panopticon prison at Breda in Holland designed by Johan Frederik Metzlaar (1884) showing the individual cells and access gantries as seen from the gaoler’s position at the centre. In place of the Roman Gods, or knowledge in the form of books, prisoners are “stored” around the walls of the drum. A universe of power over people. @thecmoa @thebritishmuseum #pantheon #panopticon #surveillance #observation #scopophilia #architecture #contemporaryart #conceptualart #sculpture #prison #library

A detail from our sculpture “The British Museum” (1987) where three wood and glass encased “books” contain scale models of three buildings. This is the plan of the British Museum designed by Robert Smirke in 1823. The Round Reading Room at the centre was designed by his brother Sydney in 1854. Inspired by the Pantheon in Rome and concieved as an interior rather than a building, the space is 2 feet smaller in diameter than the Pantheon and the drum on which the dome sits is half the height. @thecmoa @thebritishmuseum #pantheon #panopticon #surveillance #observation #scopophilia #architecture #contemporaryart #conceptualart #sculpture #prison #library

The Plumbers Row elevation of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry established in 1570 in the reign of Elizabeth1. The foundry was Britains oldest manufacturing company until it ceased trading in May 2017 after nearly 450 years of bell making - and 250 years on this site. These premises date from 1670 and were formerly a coaching inn called “The Artichoke” which had been damaged in the Great Fire of London.[7] The Artichoke ceased trading in 1738 and the following year the Whitechapel Bell Foundry moved in. The foundry remained active until May 2017. It was one of only two bell foundries left in the UK and had been in continuous production for almost 450 years.[4] The Master Founders (bell makers) of Aldgate and Whitechapel can be traced in an unbroken line back to 1420. 🔔🔔🔔🔕🔕🔕

“Suits Us : couples who dress alike” in todays Guardian Weekend Magazine…..photo taken on Whitechapel Road outside the Whitechapel Bell Foundry where Big Ben (1858) and the Liberty Bell (1752) were both cast. Until it closed in May this year it was the UKs oldest manufacturing company. It has been in it’s present location since 1738, but was previously on the other side of Whitechapel Road from 1570. Records show an unbroken line of Master Bell Founders in Whitechapel from 1420 to 2017. Tragically, although the beautiful early C18 frontage will be retained the remainder of this historic site is about to be re-developed. 🔔🔔🔔🔕🔕🔕🔕Thanks to @harrietturney for the photo! @guardian and @melwilkinson1 @guardianfashion
