The opening reception for British artist and writer Nicola Anthony’s latest solo exhibition was held on 14 October. Guests were greeted by a wave of words penned in turquoises and blues as they stepped through our glass doors.

These words were actually the secrets and confessions gathered from the public through the confession slips we left at the shop, face-to-face confession sessions with Nicola or from submissions online.

Tokyo-Cinderella-Dolls-EDMThe cast and crew of Tokyo Cinderella Dolls came to town at the start of the new year and here we are to take you through the best moments of the evening.

IMG_4967The exhibition launched to a private reception on 7 Jan and took off where the two dolls from Karin Shikata’s photographic journey in Tokyo “came to life”, re-enacted their time in Tokyo and gave a full theatrical performance, engaging both guests and staff!

While we browsed around the exhibition, we discovered a photograph of the dolls eating Takoyaki! A very popular Japanese snack both in Japan and in Singapore.

Eating their way through in Tokyo with something fun and familiar - Takoyaki!

Takoyaki

Chef Joseph and his team at SPRMRKT went along with the Japanese theme to create their own version of a Takoyaki out of fried risotto (otherwise known in Italy as arancini), worcestershire sauce and bonito flakes! This was featured with a Grilled Teriyaki Pork Bao with Coleslaw, Fried Chicken Wrap and Corn & Crab Chawanmushi.

But the evening could not have been more entertaining with the guests who came, ate, drank, talked about Japan, food and art to a curated soundtrack of Japanese electronic house and pop music!

And some might say the real highlight of the evening was when one of the dolls started feeding our guests and shocked a few!

but all was good and guests started to play along 🙂

Another lucky guest getting fed which caused some excitement 🙂

Finally when the crowd subsided a little, we went to the back of the shop only to discover that Karin was shooting and working on her next exhibition of these dolls and their time spent in Singapore!

IMG_5018We can’t wait to see where her next exhibition of these dolls on the streets of Singapore will take her… though we hear it might be in London or Paris!

All photographs are for sale and if you were wondering about the photo frames and where you could purchase these, they were all actually put together and lovingly handcrafted by the photographer, Karin, with original origami paper and is part of her artistic expression with these photographs. Here’s a quick glimpse of some of the designs from the show:

Thank you to all who made it. We had a blast and we hope you did too. For those who missed it, do pop into the bistro to catch the wonderful photographic series of Tokyo Cinderella Dolls before it ends on 8 March.

A pre-Christmas initative, 50 for 50,  got us reflecting about what it takes to raise monies for a cause. We were really fortunate to be nominated by one of the talented changemakers, Debby Kwong! Driven by not only her passion for fashion but for food, Makan Makan At The Sultan, was an all day food fair with lots of other exciting food vendors at the eclectic boutique hotel The Sultan located in Little India.

And what was on our menu? A Christmassy White Chocolate Brownie with Dried Apricots & Pistachio for the elderly all packaged with a glass plate and fork! Debby’s event was in support of The Home Nursing Foundation in Singapore and so we wanted to create a sweet treat where both you and your grandma can enjoy! Our favourite fresh fruit soda producers Citizen Pop and…

BEE where were you?!

REIMAGINING featuring pop artist Philip Hemnell just ended yesterday and we thought of bringing back some of the good memories from the launch!

Make Up Artist Tinoq!

Our first guest at the show was a blast of pink which ironically brought Hemnell’s vibrant pieces to life! We couldn’t have adored this sweetheart more.

Having some fun before more guests arrive.

And while the private reception was in progress, we took a chance to wander around the shop and discovered mini artistic treasures which fitted right into the concept of SPRMRKT!

IMG_1057

One of Hemnell’s most iconic pieces – The National Rice Cooker

The National rice cooker was one of Hemnell’s earliest and most iconic pieces which pretty much marked his departure from corporate finance into the world of art and creativity. The rice cooker is significant to Hemnell as it was the one object he only really cared about to bring with him when he went to London to start university. We’re stoked to finally see it at SPRMRKT with its multiple juxtapositions.

The fun didn’t end there when we got a chance to meet the super lovely owner of Galerie Steph For more updates from Galerie Steph, follow them on Facebook!

Two Rabbits Smoky Chilli has been one of our more popular condiments and we couldn’t resist using it in one of our dishes while catering for the reception. We were really lucky to have one half of the brains behind Two Rabbits attend the show.

We catered a mix of sweet and savoury items and which we hope you enjoyed!
