Sid Qee for VinylCPH

VinylCPH - Sid Lee - Sid Qee

The Vinyl CPH exhibition is set in motion by a great passion for designer toys - a phenomenon where the established art scene meets urban culture. The aim of the project is to break down boarders between art and graphic design, by letting a selected group of artists give life to 30 blank 20 inch Vinyl toys.

I was invited to take part in Vinyl CPH. I received a blank white Qee. In return I had to come up with a brilliant idea of how to decorate the little fellow. There were no restrictions on which tools to use or materials to apply.

The outcome, dubbed ‘Sid Qee’, is an insight into the crooked mind of the Sid Lee Artisan. Replacing the head of the Vinyl toy with a small TV showing a slightly disturbing video loop.

The exhibition will run at Danish Architecture Center DAC from the 1st of December to the 2nd of February 2009/2010. It will also be showcased and for sale on the website vinylcph.dk all proceeds are donated to Red Cross - so go shop!
