Food: Urban Fog, temporary space

Opened last week in London’s Dalston area, Urban Fog is a temporary site-specific art installation and teahouse curated by architecture practice Atelier Chanchan.

Collaborating with popular local café Tina We Salute You the Urban Fog team has created a temporary teahouse providing tea and cake, as well as a thought- provoking art installation fused with architecture. The temporary space on a derelict urban plot aims to create the effect of entering a lost cloud, where figures emerge and disappear when becoming distorted through light and shadow. Creating an eerie and captivating urban art installation this captivating project investigates concepts such as escape, transparency and thresholds and is a fascinating exploration of the boundaries between art, urban space and architecture.

Opening times: Thursday- Sunday 11am-6pm until the 21st of May-  all the proceeds going to the Japan disaster relief.
