FABELIST presents IMPRINT, a world of interweaving art works & storytellers capturing the past, celebrating the present and introducing the future at Serpentine Gallery's Centre For Possible Studies.

IMPRINT is a collective exhibition and interactive arts project inspired both by the artists' own experiences and by the stories of Church Street Neighbourhood London NW8, staged in a range of media, from music and art to spoken word and gastronomy.

 

Visitors are invited to see and listen to the individual and collaborative imprints from FABELIST’s established artists and writers who have been exhibited and published all over the world. Discover previously unrepresented talents and see the results of the collaborative work of FABELIST’s acclaimed contributors with Church Street neighborhood.

The daytime launch event is perfect for children and adults alike, each activity providing you a chance to work with award winning artists to realize future dreams. You will be invited to leave your memories in safekeeping with the story weavers at ‘the web of unforgotten stories’ and be whisked on your way by a magic flying balloon. Create heroes and heroines with young fashion designers at ‘Poppy’s Paper Doll Parlour’ and add your imagined destination to the ‘Story Village’, inspired by the designs for new housing by Church Street residents. Direct your story with FABELIST’s troubadours and audition to join The Edible Art Movement’s banquet. Don’t forget to get your ticket stamped at each activity to complete your imprint .

The launch evening will see these stories transformed into a more adult language as the Edible Art Movement serve drinks with a twist from a story salon and the paper dolls ditch their dungarees for party dresses. Musicians and theatrical performers will join the throng and guests will be enticed to participate in scenarios inspired by the stories of youth groups from Church Street as they wander through the art work.
