Temple of the Tongue
Bompas & Parr welcome visitors to their studio for a sensual and provocative installation as part of LFA - London, June 2017
Temple of the Tounge - Bermondsey London, June 2017
For the first time ever, Bompas & Parr welcome you into their studio for a sensual and provocative installation, Temple of the Tongue. The event coincides with the studio’s 10th anniversary and will guide you through a selection of gastronomical, immersive and flavour-based innovations that have been in the eyes of the media over the past decade.
Looking through the lens of memory, visitors to Temple of the Tongue will experience a satellite version of the retrospective exhibition, Tongue Town, launching in May 2017 at the São Paulo Museum of Modern Art. While Tongue Town will focus on the context and output of Bompas & Parr projects, Temple of the Tongue will hone in on the processes of the studio.
Equipped with headphones, visitors will be guided through an audio-tour around the 3 Grange Yard warehouse, the site of Bompas & Parr’s creativity in London. The satellite exhibition will allow people to enter the kitchens and workshops while the team goes about their daily business, providing an immersive experience that will animate the entirety of the studio. During the tour, exhibition invigilators, armed with crystal tipped spears, will interrogate your flavour palate, feed you rare treats from the Bompas & Parr kitchen, and sit you down to hear a recital from a cocktail pipe-organ.
The London Festival of Architecture provides the perfect platform for Temple of the Tongue as one of Bompas & Parr’s first ever projects, the Architectural Jelly Banquet, was launched as part of the festival in 2008.
Bermondsey London - 19th-22nd of June 2017
