The Mouse and his Child

Music from Kit Wilmans Fegradoe and a reading from Samantha Spiro.

27th Feb 2019
6pm – 10pm

The artistic duo are creating a sculptural library space with a raspberry ripple rug, coconut tables, trifle stools and a unique worm-like sausage sculpture holding down a stupendous, lit balloon.

The focus of the books available to read in this haven will be literature for children by novelists who usually write adult fiction. Did you know that Virginia Woolf wrote a children’s book called The Widow and the Parrot?

This new space is inspired by childhood classic The Mouse and His Child written by Russell Hoban and illustrated by Lillian Hoban. The books chosen speak of child-like themes but tap into an adult psyche, creating an exhibition for everyone.

Come and connect to your inner child, have a drink and enjoy sophisticated nursery food by Craft London.

Rooted in an understanding of different cultures and reaching out towards lesser known stories, Kit Wilmans Fegradoe’s work is never far from a narrative. After studying and experimenting with other forms of sound work, a deeper passion in composition was reignited. Kit is fascinated with presenting harmonious and textured sonic landscapes, allowing space for the listener to explore and play with the hope of eliciting a holistic experience of sound.

Samantha Spiro is best known for portraying Barbara Windsor in the stage play Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick and the television film Cor, Blimey!, DI Vivien Friend in M.I.T.: Murder Investigation Team, and Melessa Tarly in the HBO series Game of Thrones. She has won two Laurence Olivier Awards. She will be reading an extract from Russell Hoban’s The Mouse and His Child.

Exhibition runs 28 Feb – 28 Apr 19
