Maja Djordjevic: Nothing to Wear Again! for Skip Gallery

Skip Gallery – that’s right, a gallery space held in a skip – has announced its latest show, titled Look At This. Set to be its largest and most ambitious to date, the group exhibition will feature the works of David Shrigley, Gavin Turk, Richard Woods, Paul Kindersley and Maja Djordjevic, as well as new installations from Baker & Borowski and Sarah Maple.

For this show in Finsbury Park, Skip Gallery has worked in collaboration with the Arts Building – a six-storey mixed-use building in the area. Held on the ground floor space of the building, the free exhibition presents seven large-scale skips converted into artworks. The exhibition title takes its name from Shrigley’s skip piece in 2017, which featured a set of small metal letters placed in the bottom of the skip in Hoxton Square, stating that very phrase. He explained to It’s Nice That at the time that it’s his idea of “meta art”.

“Art that describes itself, or describes the most basic function or demand of the artwork. Just saying, ‘look at this’. Because that’s what I want, for people to look at it!”

An ongoing collaborative project conceived by painter-sculpture duo Lee Baker and Catherine Borowski, founders of Baker & Borowski, Skip Gallery aims to to offer art in unexpected places – achieved through the use of a modified refuse skip.


Featuring a performance by artist Paul Kindersly, Look At This opens today (5 September) until 15 September at the Arts Building, Morris Place, London, N4 3JG.
