Roger Hiorns

“He uses unusual materials to effect surprising transformations on found objects and urban situations. Fire emerges from storm drains, perfume permeates metal surfaces, and crystals colonise industrial objects. He is best known for his installation in South London where he transformed an entire ex-council flat, covering it in brilliant blue copper sulphate crystals. 75,000 litres of solution were pumped into the council flat to create a strangely beautiful and glittering crystalline growth on the walls, floor, ceiling and bath of this abandoned dwelling. The project was called SEIZURE”
