Sketch - The GalleryDazzling and design are the main buzz words here. A place where the toilets - a collection of bright white, egg-shaped, space-age pods - are as much a talking point as the food. Laid out over two floors, on the former site of the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Sketch complex comprises two critically acclaimed restaurants, an art gallery, un salon de thé and two spectacular bars.

Celebrated British artist, David Shrigley, has transformed the Gallery at sketch as part of a long-term programme of artist-conceived restaurants. Open for afternoon tea and dinner the project follows the huge success of artist Martin Creeds restaurant commission at sketch in 2012.
239 new works line the restaurant's walls, forming the largest group of original drawings David Shrigley has ever exhibited.

India Mahdavi, who has created a backdrop for David Shrigley's artwork, conceived a soothing, monochromatic, strikingly comprehensive interior. The classic, almost bourgeois design invites a deliberately playful contrast with the witty, outré art works; all is most certainly not what it seems. While matching sketch's delight in the avant-garde, this harmonious disorder breaks with the Gallery's usual eclecticism.

The exhibition continues on the restaurant tables:
Shrigley has understood the dining table as an auxiliary exhibition space, a platform for the presentation of new work by himself and Master Chef, Pierre Gagnaire.

The work comprises new ceramic tableware featuring Shrigley's distinctive mordant drawings and texts, in a holistic interaction with Gagnaire's food.
The meal itself becomes a site-specific sculptural work that references sketch's location in the heart of London and invites diners to respond with their own thoughts and reactions.
