“The ‘High-Rise’ series are photographs of models depicting an anti-utopian urban environment, assembled from distorted elements of residential and industrial architecture and structures found in the cityscapes of London and New York. They portray a run-down and badly maintained collection of structures that are slightly contrived and unusual, but still perfectly possible in today’s urban scene. Unfinished construction sites and decaying socialist council flats both displaying their internal networks of inter connecting balconies and open walk ways and staircases. The monumental bridges create undesirable underworlds and the elevated motorways crammed in next to residential neighborhoods show that quality of life and personal space had been overridden with the need for development. A transient history of a bustling and fast paced home to industry and commerce and a dense, over crowded population, now seemingly void of human habitation, possibly due to decline, disintegration or abandonment. Although the subject is bleak, I don’t necessarily want the focus to be negative or political, instead I want the landscapes to show an exciting playground for exploration, and the discovery of remains and traces, without law or restriction. Not being satisfied with just the format of a photograph, ‘High-Rise’ is a physical constructive process of carefully selected buildings from an environment that I interact with everyday. The exploration at this manageable scale is a way of adjusting and familiarising myself with an environment, placing together components piece by piece developing a physical cityscape that I can relate to. This series of work is displayed as photographs, but the reality of the three-dimensional model and it’s cardboard edges and joins are left deliberately unaltered with the intention of being discovered on close inspection by the viewer.” NICK SELLEK

Sandy’s visit to New York

makes Sellek’s work seem even stronger. The viewer is faced with a rundown urban landscape that seems to be recovering after some serious damage, presented through unusual means: the artist makes a physical model of an imaginary setting, which is, in fact, his mental map of NY. At the same time, the images tell the story of New York’s tumultuous urban history — as a result, the experience is almost like cutting a tree into sections and reading its rings.

questionable questionnaire

If you were homeless, and had a choice of the city to live in, which would you choose?

I’ve just finished Paul Auster’s ‘The New York Trilogies’ so I would have to say New York.

What is your favorite thing to do on Sunday?

Now its becoming winter, it would probably be Sunday lunch at home with friends and housemates and board games… and plenty of red wine!

If you could invent a fruit, what would it taste like? 

A lemon drizzle cake, layered with cream, inside a lemon, it would taste delicious but would also be incredibly healthy, maybe even a ‘super-fruit’.
