Credit Card Destroying Machine

On Thomas Dane Gallery’s stand, Londoner Michael Landy’s a Jean Tinguely-inspired ‘Credit Card Destroying Machine’ is a fabulous contraption of saws, levers, stuffed toys and a wood chipper that will make a drawing, signed by the artist, for anyone willing to have a credit card shredded and spewed out in bits. (You may remember that this same artist once systematically destroyed all his belongings in an empty department store on Oxford Street.) It’s bound to be a crowd favourite. The gallery has also put together a beautiful studio-style hang of works by all of its artists that is worth spending some time with.
