London-based artists Langlands & Bell explore the relationships between people and architecture, and the coded systems of mass communications and exchange that we use to negotiate a fast-changing technological world.
They began collaborating after they met at art school in 1977. Their work ranges from film and digital media projects to sculpture, installation and full-scale architecture. Within an aesthetic framework, it focuses on the structures we inhabit and the networks that connect them, while reflecting at a wider global level on the many ways space is encoded as social, political or economic territory.
Langlands & Bell commemorated Frank Pick’s iconic designs with a permanent memorial in Piccadilly Circus station, titled ‘Beauty < Immortality’ marking the 75th anniversary of Pick’s death.
