The Art of Dining brings you ‘Say Cheese’: a unique photo-culinary experience combining a photography exhibition with a pop-up restaurant and bar inspired by the world of Martin Parr.
This collaboration with one of Britain’s most esteemed photographers will take the concept of the exhibition to a whole new level: the photography hanging on the walls will be recreated on plates, in glasses and all around for this very special event.
Chef Ellen Parr will put food from Martin’s photography directly onto dinner plates, recreating a five-course meal like for like. But while the dishes’ appearance will remain faithful to Martin’s work, looks may deceive as Ellen playfully inverts sweet and savoury and explores flavours and spices from all around the world…
Set designer Alice Hodge will transform a former library in Hoxton into a resplendent and fully immersive world of Martin Parr – kitsch, humourous and quintessentially British. The venue will be split into the dining room and ‘The Lipman Members Bar’, a fully stocked bar serving retro-classic cocktails as seen in Martin’s photography and complete with chintzy carpet, sofas, a retro television, a tombola,games and more.
