With Work No 1347 Martin Creed will transform Sketch , the London gallery-restaurant of the historic building at 9 Conduit Street.
Designed in 1779 by James Wyatt for James Viner, the palace has hosted, in more than two centuries, a formidable variety of companies and associations – suffragettes, psychologists, experts in hot air balloons. During 1900, it has been the headquarters of the RIBA Royal Society of British Architects and the Atelier Christian Dior who had created the place for avant-garde modernist interior design.
In 2002 Mourad Mazouz – restaurants owner of Momo in London and 404 in Paris – and the chef Pierre Gagnaire respecting the expectations and responsibilities of the building’s history, opened a gallery- restaurant that hosts artists such as Jonas Mekas, Carsten Nicolai and film projects in collaboration with the Serpentine Gallery .
Sketch is a place that includes art, film, music and food, keeping everything on the same value.
On March 1, 2012 coinciding to Sketch’s 10th anniversary, Martin Creed will transform the entire building working on the furnishings as well as walls and floor. Work No 1347 includes 96 types of marble will snake through the floor, a large scale paintings, chairs, glasses and tables, each one as different pieces from different industry, crafts and history.
The menu will also be adapted to the exhibition. Pierre Gagnaire will prepare dishes inspired by this work of Creed.
In the meantime you can go to Sketch for one of the many activities of the day or night and choose the room of the food perfect for you.
