HYPER JAPAN Christmas Market

christmas_slider

The next weekend I’ll be getting my geek on at the HYPER JAPAN Christmas Market!
The event will take place at Olympia in London from Friday 14th November – Sunday 16th November.

HYPER JAPAN is back for the festive season to deliver another instalment of crazy, cute and creative Japanese culture
to Olympia London in the long-awaited Christmas Market 2014. Themed around ‘unique and interesting
Christmas gifts’, the market will feature a higher proportion of shopping booths and gift experiences than in previous
HYPER JAPAN events. However, it is by no means exclusively a shopping experience – guests will be treated to a
wide variety of stage performances, martial arts and cooking demonstrations, cosplayers shows and will of course be able to wine and dine at the ever-popular food and drink stalls.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #2 _ Lucy Sparrow

lucy sparrow

Working at the intersection of contemporary art and craft, Lucy Sparrow’s work sets the agenda
for textiles within the urban art scene. She works mainly with felt and wool,
creating over-sized soft versions of existing objects and major art works The aim of this ‘feltism’ is to question,
playfully, the politics of artistic production and to tackle (often collaboratively) some of realities of contemporary living,
dealing with issues concerning the politics of consumerism, social exclusion and mental wellbeing.

Digestive biscuits, Bisto, Red Stripe, KY Jelly and Men’s Health magazine … Lucy Sparrow has stuffed and
stitched them all for her installation The Cornershop. Funded by Kickstarter, the shop contains nearly
2,000 classic groceries; and they’re all for sale.
