Aircraft Recycling in the UK
By Tony Hutchings

2nd February 2015 until 8th March 2015

This Project started when Tony Hutchings read an article about aircraft recycling in the UK. Having a life-long interest in all things related to aviation he decided to try to get permission to photograph aircraft at various stages of deconstruction. Unlike in the Mohave Desert where literally thousands of aircraft wait for years under the glare of the sun,  aircraft arriving at Cotswolds Airport do not stay in one piece for long. A Boeing 747 will arrive and immediately the avionics, engines and any other high demand parts are removed, assessed and boxed for shipping. The speed at which a plane is deconstructed leads to a real sense of a moment in time and within four weeks there is nothing remaining of the plane, the final part of the process is to tear up the hull and to transport the alloys to be turned into things like fridges and drinks cans. It is amazing what happens to the some of the more mundane features like doors and windows.

No one here lives in the Real World

20th February - 22nd March

Standpoint Gallery, N1.

No-one Lives in the Real World is an exhibition about incongruous spaces, absurd structures and fragile worlds featuring artists who share an affinity for the use of collage in their work – both the literal cutting out and sticking down or the re-assembling of elements from different times & contexts including art history, architecture, literature, nature & technology. Through the mediums of sculpture, drawing, painting, print, photography, video & installation we encounter conversations about imperfection, fragility and otherness.
