H&M and Wes Anderson Come Together

Mulberry’s at it, John Lewis is at it, now H & M have enlisted the talents of Wes Anderson and Adrien Brody to launch their Christmas Campaign. Come Together features Adrien Brody as Conductor Ralph, on a train battling the snowy weather and mechanical problems. Having announced to his passengers that the train will be delayed, Ralph and his assistant Fritz put on a Christmas brunch for their passengers culminating in John and Yoko’s rendition of ‘This is Christmas: War is Over’ as a little boy puts a star on the tree.

Wes Anderson’s trademark quirkiness serves him well here, subversively undermining the innocent story with a peaceful message. The short film looks gorgeous too, the candy colours creating a nostalgic atmosphere, which is perhaps what Christmas is all about.

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.
