SUMNER

SUMNER

Sumner is Kristina Sarkisova, a singer-songwriter hailing from Spain via Moscow, currently based in London. Her music is powerful… it draws you in, taking you to a state of contemplation that caresses your soul. Melancholia meets curiosity, mystery marries bitter-sweetness. In a realm of mindful exploration of duality she unveils reality as subjective sensation, an artful revelation that opens up a beautiful space for personal and universal potentiality – so tune in and let her waves carry you away…

Join Sumner for an intimate gig & celebration of the release of her first EP. Music, wine, wonderful people.

Monday, 24th June // 7pm // Downstairs in the wine cellar @ Bedales of Borough Market // Free entry

Beagling into the Night

BEAGLEHaving reluctantly missed the soft launch in the beginning of April (due to fiery final year essays) and then finding myself out of town (au revoir rainy London), I finally managed to check out the Beagle. Deducing from the the crowds spilling out, this new restaurant, bar and coffee shop run by krankbrother‘s Kieran and Danny, has already climbed up the ladder of hotness in the East End. Seeming fairly well-acquainted, the guests (and staff) engage in cordial small talk whilst glances and waves are being exchanged, giving the place an air of familiarity that often lacks in the hangouts of the knowing. Providing an extension of social space, the outdoor seating area offers a chill space for the smoking hordes and will be a favorite once summer beats the queen of cold.

Situated under the railway arches right outside Hoxton Overground Station, the Beagle‘s interior with its bare brick walls and sphered lamps giving off warm light, offers a timeless setting for enjoying one of their superb cocktails – try Tisane or the Unbeeten Hangover Cocktail, – and the food brought to you by James Ferguson, former Head Chef at Rochelle Canteen. Staying loyal to British cuisine (vegans stay away!), the Beagle presents seasonal cooking with daily specials hung high on black boards – offering a quaint dining experience in this noisy but sophisticated eatery.

Waiting for you. Now.

AUFBAU HAUS

Aufbau HausThis centre for creatives is a dazzling star in Berlin’s fabulous Kreuzberg micro-universe. Situated on Moritzplatz, right around the corner from the co-working space BetaHaus and across from the urban gardening site Prinzessinnengarten, it is an innovative new presence on the city’s cultural landscape. It beautifully complements it’s surrounding and offers an eclectic range of events – from club nights at Prince Charles to Iraqi Theatre to craft workshops.

AFTER THE VOID

MON

GG’s Halea teams up with Maria Vega of the Ministry of Nomads for an exhibition that explores states of consciousness which emerge from the quiet stillness and ecstasy of the free mind. Diverse in their medium and technicality, the artworks and performances draw inspiration from moments of self-transcendence and eminent awareness that are not subordinate to rational analysis or the problem-solving mind.

SHOW YOU ARE NOT AFRAID

In the post 9/11 environment we have to start our own revolution, a revolution of love and solidarity. Fear is a paralyzing poison that we have to overcome in our minds and actions. German artist MikaelMikael works freely across different platforms to create alternative multi-directional interventions. Show you are not afraid is one of our favorites:

»SHOW YOU ARE NOT AFRAID!« THAT IS WHAT THE MAYOR OF NEW YORK ADVISED THE INHABITANTS OF HIS CITY ONE DAY AFTER 9/11. WHAT, TODAY, SHOULD WE NOT BE AFRAID OF? OR WHAT, MAYBE, SHOULD WE BE AFRAID OF? WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO SHOW NO FEAR, EVEN IF IT EXISTS?

Plato’s Cave XHBT

‘You do not know you are a prisoner because you were born in the cave and it is the only life you have ever known.’

THE LIGHT SHOW

Light Show 

This sublime exhibition presents how the fluidity of matter is embodied by light traveling in space and time. Art in its purest form transcends meaning and rises to a level of self-liberation through an emancipation of the senses. Constantly surrounded by hyper-stimulating screens and moving image content, light has the capacity to reduce all of this to what it really is: movement.  It is the birth of a soul-soothing illusion that envelops us by freeing our thoughts, in a state of profound contemplation and meditation; reminding of us of the need to indulge in what Giorgio Agamben termed profound boredom, ‘the desire for happiness left in its pure state.’

Light Show

Some of the greatest light installation artists like Olafur Eliasson, Jim Campbell,  and Brigitte Kowanz have been conjoined for this this awe-inspiring exhibition that will capture you for hours. Be spell-bound by Leo Villareal’s sparkling universe, close your eyes and feel the heat of Cerith Wyn Evans’ columns, and enter into the hypnotizing void of Anthony McCall’s work in this Wonderland of lights and colours.

HALF BAKED Label Launch

The HB bicycle

A Sunday should be spent sleeping, chilling, dreaming – or at Half Baked.

The Record Label Launch on 27/01 was of particular grandeur – a praiseworthy debauchery overseen by a fairy-lit bicycle hovering above the raving mass. After a TFL-misadventure culminating in a pre-cab pit-stop at McDonalds, we finally arrived at Autumn Street Studios situated in the far ‘n’ free territory of Hackney Wick – and entered into a sound maze celebrating HB’s love and commitment to underground house and techno music. Raising the holy day to a new level of sacredness, we once again gulped down the 9PM-feels-like-3AM sensation against the characteristic seemingly less-than-legal backdrop, ensuring an (almost) fresh start into the week after yet another Sunday Fun-Day!

HB coveLack of lock

The launch of the Vinyl Only imprint is a hot French affair with Le Loup, Seuil, Yakine and HBF Agency resident artist Robin Ordell – to be released 04/03/2013. Until then, hit up the (sound)cloud for a sample to chill and bounce to!
