- Esther Jablotschkin
For long there wasn’t a lot going on in Margate, a sleepy little town in the county Kent, England.

Especially striking is that everything of the facade, like brick facing, windows and front door, make a perfect bend, as if it slid down like a piece of clothing in an unobserved moment.

Alex Chinneck is known for his surreal constructions at ordinary buildings. This project will be seen in the 1 Godwin Road, Cliftonville, Margate until october 2014.
