The businesses in the collective include acclaimed bar and exhibition space Dreambags Jaguarshoese, cafe bar The Old Shoreditch Station, publication PosterPaper , record label BigDirty-Engine and fashion store no one.They provide many platforms for creative talent, from exhibitions and events to collaborative products.
In August 2010 we hosted ‘The Doorz’ a double exhibtion at both the Old Shoreditch Station and DreamBagsJaguarShoes by Illustration giants Matt Furie and Will Sweeney.
The Doorz is a trans – dimensional journey via traditional drawing methods (caran d’ache pencil crayon, ink wash), modern communication methods (skype, yousendit.com) and deluxe digital printing.
London based artist Will Sweeney and San Francisco’s Matt Furie collaborated on a series of images of portals, doorways and entrances to new worlds. Evoking the imagery of surreal children’s books, lost animations and hyper real alien landscapes. The Doorz is a unique game of visual Chinese whispers by this influential pair and took the form of fine art prints at the Old Shoreditch Station and large scale installation at DreamBagsJaguarShoes.
As part of the show we also produced a limited edition t-shirt by Will Sweeney and a celebratory tea set by Matt Furie.
The whole exhibition will be shown and re-installed ad hoc for the Wok- store since the 14th January till the 12th February.
You are invited to take part in the opening on the 14th January from 7 pm to 10 pm , one of the two artists, Will Sweeney, will be there and with Dj set Sebi/ Clubsilencio
