The eight-week installation invites you on a surreal trip into outer space, filled with out-of-this-world sunglasses and the odd extra-terrestrial creature.

'Traders'

in The Corner Shop at Selfridges London

This unique concept, dreamt up by the geniuses at Gentle Monster, follows the traders – a tribe of extra-terrestrial creatures that travel across space in search of a new territory. They travel in multiple space ships, trading minerals and micro-organisms for tools and materials necessary for their new settlement. One of their most valuable trading goods are living organisms called Konchylion (Ancient Greek for edible shellfish), which are far from obedient.

 

The traders have just landed at The Corner Shop at Selfridges London, where you can witness minerals being unloaded from trading space vessels and the traders struggling to keep the wild Konchylions in order…

 

Experience Traders at The Corner Shop until 28 July.
