ROOT – Exhibition & Residency with artist Robert George Sanders
June 16, 2022-6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
By Robert George Sanders
Thursday 16 June
Root is an exhibition in the Crypt Gallery, Euston, showcasing immersive floral installation from independently grown and foraged materials.
Artist, designer and performer Robert George Sanders has become accustomed in his day job as a florist to fight the battle of keeping cultivated flowers fresh in the hot bright world of retail: to celebrate the beauty of the fragile wild flower with solemn sensitivity, Sanders is using the cells of the dark cold underground crypt.
Accompanied by sounds made by designer Harry Evans, musician Samuel Loveless, DJ Chameleonas and Revelator the band, responding to the idea of the sound of plants, ROOT is Sanders idea of ‘the perfect venue for a night out’: sight, sound, smell and atmosphere, rooted in the ground.
ROOT is designed to represent all of Sanders set design work growing and gathering his own organic materials, normally attuned to fashion and performance, and how it works as a niche in the world of floristry, hence its appearance in British Flower Week.
Robert will be collaborating with London Drawing to present an immersive Drawing Theatre event: Shooting Limbs on Friday 17 June
