London: Hackney Wick Takeover at the V&A Museum

Hackney Wick at the V&A Museum

For one night only the creative teams of Hackney Wick have taken over V&A Museum in London with art, music and many workshops.

In the Grand Entrance designer Charlotte Papon created giant HW paper installation, where visitors could participate by adding their own personalised origami piece to the surface and watched as the shapes and colours of Hackney Wick emerged. 

In one of the rooms, street artist OKO created a large drawing installation with animal creatures and romantic envisagings.

The Pen Pushers team invited participants to their drawing workshop and create a fairy tale interpretation of Hackney Wick and Fish Island complete with pirates and canal monsters.

Exiting through the gift shop of the museum (no pun intented…) viewers could enjoy an installation by  graffiti artist Sweet Toof, featuring a model version of his infamous water tank in New York (covered here) with his trademark teeth and gums, as well as miniature trains with Paul Insect
