Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop is excited to present a unique multidisciplinary project gathering culinary, contemporary and craft arts. Hermione Allsopp, sculptor whose medium is familiar domestic elements reconditioned to a new life and One Star House Party’s chefs trained in some of the world’s best restaurants, are occupying the gallery space for one month.
Kevin McCrae, Trisha McCrae and James Sharman have just spent eight months travelling to eight different countries, building eight very different restaurants out of what they discover along the way. So far, their restaurants have taken them to the Base camp of Mount Everest, night trains through Vietnam and to the streets of Mumbai. During their stay at Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop they will be serving an eight course tasting menu, made up from their favourite dish from each of the countries they have visited. A performance style installation, chefs will be cooking in a ‘kitchen’ built within the gallery in front of diners. Dinners will take place among Hermione Allsopp’s domestic sculptures made by the artist by collecting objects and furniture and re-creating them into new forms or compositions.
Gross Domestic Product is therefore a multi-sensory exhibition showing the culmination of an unprecedented pop-up restaurant’s research and travels, surrounded by the works of artist Hermione Allsopp’s sculptural body of work.
