Celebrated British artist, David Shrigley has transformed the gallery at sketch as part of a long term programme of artist conceived restaurants. Open for afternoon tea and dinner the project follows the huge success of artist Martin Creed’s restaurant commission at sketch in 2012.
239 new world line the restaurant’s walls, forming the largest group of original drawings David Shrigley has ever exhibited.
India Mahdavi, who created a backdrop for David Shrigley’s artwork, conceived a soothing monochromatic, strikingly comprehensive interior. The classic, almost bourgeouis design invites a deliberately playful contrast with the witty, outre art works, all is most certainly not what it seems. While matching sketch’s delight in the avant -garde, this harmonious disorder breaks with the gallery’s usual eclectism.
The exhibition continues on the restaurant tables, shrigley has understood the dining table as an auxillary exhibition space, a platform for the presentation of new work by himself and master chef, Pierre Gagnaire.
The work comprises new ceramic tableware featuring Shrigley’s distinctive mordant drawings and texts, in a holistic interaction with Gagnaires food.
The meal itself becomes a site specific sculptural work that references sketch’s location in the heart of London and invites diners to respond with their own thoughts and reactions.
In addition fashion designer Richard Nicoll has been enlisted to create bespoke uniforms for the gallery restaurant staff to wear. For the girls, the design is a play on Nicoll’s signature T-shirt dress silhouette; for the boys, a smart, grey boiler suit.
The magic surrounding this woodland bar, provides an ideal setting for afternoon tea, comfort food and evening cocktails.
Artists Carolyn Quartermaine and Didier Mahieu, have created an enchanted fairy tale forest. For the Glade at Sketch, they have created a decoupage forest which appears like something half-remembered and yet completely contemporary. Taking inspiration from early c20th stationery, they re-painted, enlarged and reversed the design, printing it onto hundreds of metres of paper. Each piece is handcut and decoupaged to the walls. In this forest, delicate 50s rattan furniture, from the south of France, creates a startlingly modern fairy-tale romance.
From day to day the parlour is home to the finest delicacies of the sketch chefs. Lounge on a variety of Louis XV seating in the quirky and eccentric patisserie, restaurant and bar from breakfast, through comfort food and afternoon tea for up to six persons until the last drink before home.. The parlour turns into a cocktail bar from 6am to 2am (members only from 9pm)
