Nairy Baghramian: Türstopper (Door Stopper)
Spaces such as corners, doorways and backstage areas have always interested Artist Nairy Baghramian and they have been both the location and theme of her work. Baghramian has made a series of 30 unique works based on door stoppers exclusively for the Serpentine.
Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, SANAA: Limited Edition Print
This special Limited Edition set of four prints are based on the stylised computer drawings of Sejima and Nishizawa's design for the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009. The playful images reveal the distinctive shape of the structure, which the architects describe as 'floating aluminium, drifting freely between the trees like smoke'.
