Khalid al Gharaballi & Fatima Al Qadiri - Mendeel Um A7mad (NxIxSxM) – Obsessively, Compulsively, Kuwaiti (2012)
“Westernized beyond recognition, Kuwaiti youth are in the eternal search for reclamation of identity. In the recent years, the creation of trite Pop Art-inspired artworks with subjects traditional music legend Awad Al-Dokhi, indicate that the exorcism of Western influence from Kuwaiti culture is quite ill-fated when attempted via the manipulation of Western art aesthetics.”
Step inside Lucy Sparrow’s convenience store. It’ll stock everything a New Yorker needs — pizza slices, hot dogs, Twinkies, pastrami sandwiches, lottery cards, coffee — but all made from felt!
In 2014, Sparrow launched The Cornershop in London, filling a convenience store with meticulously hand-sewn felt goodies like bean cans, ciggies, and marmite. Now she hopes to go even bigger with The Convenience Store in NYC.
Once Sparrow’s vision comes to life, you’ll be able to browse shelves full of fluffy goods and purchase whatever your heart desires. A felt hot dog with glitter glue mustard and ketchup, perhaps? How about a plush PB&J sandwich in a brown paper bag? Don’t forget to greet the shop employees warmly — they’ll be keeping the shelves well-stocked for your perusing pleasure.
