Afternoon Tea Awards 2016 - Highly Commended

Michelin star-awarded sketch covers two expansive floors of a converted 18th century building in Conduit Street, just off Regent Street in the exclusive neighbourhood of Mayfair.

Celebrated British artist, David Shrigley, has transformed the Gallery at sketch as part of a long-term programme of artist-conceived restaurants. The project follows the huge success of artist Martin Creed's 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.

Shrigley has understood the dining table as an auxiliary exhibition space, a platform for the presentation of new work by himself and three Michelin Starred 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.

Please note on certain dates, sketch will offer a seasonal Afternoon Tea priced at £75 per person, replacing their usual Afternoon Tea menu
