What is it?
This week, an unusual installation will be popping up in Soho, London. Mrs and Mr Bateman is an art, fashion and interiors installation, located in the heart of one of London’s most original and eccentric areas.
The Batemans will open their ‘home’ on Wednesday 25th April for a four-day long house-warming. Created by three women bringing their own expertise from different fields, artist Selena Beaudry, vintage fashion dealer Clemmie Myers, and interior designer Natalie Tredgett have curated the space as though it’s the home of the fictitious Mrs and Mr Bateman. You are invited to enjoy their home and purchase its contents.
Mrs and Mr Bateman will feature a cross-pollination of the creative fields; hosting a panel evening where creatives from different disciplines discuss their process, what inspires them, how other art forms inform their work and will also explore how social media and technology informs or confuses their creativity.
There will be an immersive creative writing evening as well as a Kids’ Day that will offer youngsters the chance to learn new skills, including hat-making sessions with milliner Jess Collett. Myers will also create a fancy dress box encouraging kids to explore how dressing up and experimenting with clothing makes them feel.
Mrs and Mr Bateman promises to be a curious mix of artists and makers from Europe and the US, chosen for their Bateman aesthetic. Included will be Barrie Benson, Jess Collett, Frederike von Cranach, Phil Goss, Iva Gueorguieva, Daniel Hernandez, Marie Jacotey, John-Paul Pietrus, James Shaw, Margit Wittig, Ian Vail and Bari Ziperstein.
Clemmie Myers (Lime Green Bow) will be integrating her statement and designer vintage clothing artfully within the context of the home. She will also create a boudoir where guests will be encouraged to try on and fall in love with the Bateman wardrobe.
Meanwhile, Tredgett will be igniting the interior by creating whimsical vignettes that celebrate objects as art and handmade pieces.
The opening party on Wednesday 25th April will be a multi-sensory experience with DJ Henri, and when being a guest doesn’t always mean what you’d think… this is a house-warming you don’t want to miss.
