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!

And the night started off with a cocktail aperitif, Tokyo Breeze, specially concocted by a member of 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.

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!

In sum, it was a fun and engaging evening with a lot more guests who came then we managed to capture. Thank you to all who did make it. Thank you to Galerie Steph for making this a milestone in our calendar of shows and to affable artist Philip Hemnell for being such an inspiration and a hidden wunderkind.

It was the first time we catered for an art exhibition in a car show room and it was a blast.

Last night’s exhibition launch of “Soul Sisters” featuring Swedish artist Ingela Johansson and Balinese artist Ni Nyoman Sani at the Volvo Art Loft, had a pretty good turn out of friends and interested buyers.

photo 3(2)

All food was wiped out by the end of the night and we were given positive reviews especially about the Chicken Satay with homemade peanut sauce! And what tickled was when we saw guests pinching fruit from the fruit display. We were totally psyched and continued to let them pick!

We also had the pleasure of snapping a shot of the lovely Balinese artist, Sani who sportingly posed in front of our display 🙂

It was a really unique time catering for an art exhibition within a car showroom and it was indeed a beautiful, gallery-like space. We’ll cheers with our housemade lemongrass & honey beverage that is well received both at SPRMRKT and at this event!

photo 2(1)

Thank you dear Ingela for making this happen. Sani’s paintings and your mixed media works were contemporary and thought provoking. We wish the both of you lots of success and that your artworks find a good home! And to the guys at Volvo Art Loft, we hope to be back at your lovely space again soon!

Head Chef Joseph Yeo and Pastry Chef Furrene Hoh went out of their usual repertoire to create a special menu comprising of local hawker food remixed into handheld nibbles. And they were an instant hit with our guests! (we hope you guys weren’t lying! :))

Biryani Arancini

Dry Laksa

Dry Laksa – coconut and spicy noodles with fried bean curd ski, parsley and calamansi

Dry laksa is a much better alternative for catering at parties as these little cups of coconut and spicy noodles hold throughout the night without you having to worry how to keep the gravy warm or if the noodles are soaking them up.

Cheng Thng Jelly Shots

Cheng Thng Jelly Shots

Pastry Chef Furrene spent a whole month researching how to make the perfect cheng thng for these little but robust shots filled with at least 5 different ingredients. Diced to perfection with the right amount of layers and proportions, these vodka-based jelly shots were very well-received by our customers. Cheers!

Finally, these guys were the big surprise and we loved every bit of their charm from their quick set up yet effective pop up bar to their cocktails in plastic bags.

Moonshine -

Moonshine – just one of the many American Craft Spirits they had on show.

Just some background on this unusual spirit for the curious:
1. Dark Corner Distillery out of South Carolina
2. No real definition of moonshine, but essentially it’s un-aged whiskey
3. Mash is corn, red wheat and barley
4. Gold Medal at the 2014 Beverage Testing Institute Spirits Competition, Double Gold Medal at the 2013 New York World Spirits Competition
