Michael Landy: Saints Alive2013 Associate Artist in residence at the National Gallery, Michael Landy, is the subject of a free exhibition in the gallery's Sunley Room where seven kinetic sculptures go on display from May 2013. In Saints Alive Landy's large-scale works, consisting of fragments of National Gallery paintings cast in three dimensions, represent a contemporary view of the lives of the saints. Landy scours car boot sales and flea markets to create his works, recycling rubbish to create something new. One of the YBAs (Young British Artists) of the 1990s, he is best known for his 2001 installation, 'Break Down', where he catalogued and then destroyed all of his possessions.
