Evariste Maïga presents a mixed-media installation inspired by objects related to East London: off- licence stores, shopping bags and groceries as well as lottery tickets and much more.
These objects are very present in the landscape and are very much part of the visual identity of the area. Although frequently encountered, they are silent and operate discreetly. Alongside colourful projections on the walls of the gallery, a diverse selection of popular celebratory music will be playing in the gallery space.
Emerging Swiss design exhibitions are presented at the umlaut¨ gallery space on Fashion Street, off Brick Lane in London.
Emerging graphic design, product design, design theory and research, digital design and contemporary making are given a platform in a not-for-profit framework.
This initiative was taken to give the vibrant, innovative design movement in Switzerland a presence in the context of one of the world’s leading cultural cities, examining the scope of contemporary design questions and approaches, and establishing an intercultural dialogue between Swiss designers and the London public.
This series of design exhibitions is the result of a close collaboration between the Swiss Cultural Fund UK (SCF) and the British-Swiss marketing agency Blattler Ltd.
Gallery opening times: weekdays from 9am to 5pm.
