The Vinyl Factory, the London-based enterprise that produces vinyl editions, prints and exhibitions, is due to unveil its first site-specific commissioned work during Frieze week. The Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda’s piece, which is called test pattern [No. 12] (2017), is due to go on show at Store Studios on the Strand in London tomorrow (5 October) as part of a new initiative called Store X The Vinyl Factory Commissions. “We have worked on projects with artists such as Jeremy Deller, but this is the first time we’ve commissioned a site-specific work,” says Sean Bidder, the creative director of The Vinyl Factory. The company has since commissioned a new film by the Los Angeles-based artist Kahlil Joseph, called Fly Paper (2017).
