Mumburger at The Archivist’s Gallery, with RibBox

SEEN is very struck by the thriving cultural atmosphere to be found in Haggerston at the moment. Tech, music and visual arts exponents have flocked to the area, so it is clearly a bold step to create theatre here.

SEEN is very struck by the thriving cultural atmosphere to be found in Haggerston at the moment. Tech, music and visual arts exponents have flocked to the area, so it is clearly a bold step to create theatre here.

Mumburger is a new play about family, grief and red meat, written by inaugural writer-in-residence at The Archivist Sarah Kosar, and directed by Tommo Fowler. The play promises hyperrealistic elements and spoken word poetry, encouraging bold interpretations by its audience. It sounds like challenging fare; just how far would we go to reconnect with the ones we love?

The Archivist’s Gallery is a new space in which Mumburger explores disconnection and reconnection in a technological world, using food as a mechanism with which to build relationships. This process will actively include members of the audience, who will be able to buy food from a menu inspired by Mumburger, provided by RibBox.

SEEN expects an immersive experience at this unique venue. The Archivist seems set to become a firm favourite amongst artists who are unafraid to challenge the limits of their own discipline.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
