Sarah Staton’s SupaStore is an art-translation-of-fashion pop-up store. Begun in 1993 on Charing Cross Road, London the SupaStore has popped up subsequently in galleries, museums, hotel foyers, from New York to Tokyo. Light gestures and works by artists, made specifically for the “store” context, resemble and mimic what fashion does & through SupaStore we explore how fashion and shopping circulates. Recent re-enactments in Vienna, Berlin and Minneapolis bring the SupaStore into a new century. Most recently SupaStoreAir 2016 can be found at Midway Contemporary Art, in the duo exhibition with Martha Rosler, 'THE GEO POLITICS OF MONETIZED AIRSPACE — Come Fly with Me, I Meet You by the Airside Gucci Concession at 4, Fox Fur Hat' curated by Egija Inzule, and now please to be coming to you online here at SarahStatonSupaStore.shop
