LimeWharf, a new Hackney-based canal side futures gallery and cultural laboratory has now opened. Located in the heart of East London’s creative quarter on Vyner Street, this innovative and experimental centre will welcome both artists and scientists to collaborate in residencies, think-tank areas and stimulating exhibitions. The space aims to engage with the public and local communities through a series of participatory and sensual exhibitions and events tackling various and diverse topics ranging from DIY ethics and sustainable practises to cutting-edge technologies.
Founded by urbanist designer Thomas Ermacora, LimeWharf is an evolving and pioneering project that will immerse guests and artists alike. From his background in geography and international affairs, Thomas naturally migrated towards architecture and communication – with a focus on sustainable lifestyles – whilst working with European foresight organizations.
The inaugural Kitchen Experiment, a biannual three-week season of salon-inspired, food-focused events, entitled ‘Eat the World’, launched on 7 March 2013. The thematic pop-up kitchen, a union of a salon and feast is designed to encourage lively debate and conversation, with special performances and commissioned events. Guests dine seated around theWorldscape, a colossal sculptural table which mirrors the world's geographic contours. The table is designed by architect Alex Haw, and the food is by Modern Pantry’s Anna Hansen. To book go to the LimeWharf website.
LimeWharf aims to cultivate multidisciplinary conversations and explore new narratives that will inspire, spark synergies and imagine what futures may unfold.
