The House Of Ferment - London, July 7-11

The H​ouse of Ferment is a collaboration with Karen Guthrie and celebrates international, national, regional, local and personal culture and cultures within a mobile 'larder' designed with Swedish collective Front. The HoF as we like to call it, features contributions from diverse artists, cooks, makers and designers including Bedywr Williams, Giles Round and Laure Prouvost. Cultures include nuka, miso, cider vinegar, sourdough and many others. A junior version featured in our installation The Colleseum of the Consumed at Frieze Art Fair in summer 2013.

The HoF is commissioned by the new Science Gallery at King's College London and launches FED UP: the future of Food the Science Gallery London's new season of projectsand events. It launches Tuesday July 7 until Saturday 11th July at 6 Southwark St, Borough Market, London SE1 1TQ. Detailed programme to follow but we are open 10am - 5pm every day and yes we do lunch and yes it's fermented.

A recent Poland research trip was hosted by artist Kasia Garapich who will work on bringing the project to Krakow in early autumn 2015, and we plan to also plan to present the HoF in the Coniston Institute in October and November being the central component of a village restaurant.
