Fish & Stitches at Castor & Pollux
Fish & Stitches is the new art collection by Brighton-based Cardigan, created exclusively for the Brighton Food & Drink Festival and based on everyone’s favourite seaside treat – fish & chips!
Cardigan Label is the brainchild of Kate Jenkins, set up in 2003 to, “fulfil her philosophy that anything can be created from yarn as long as it is made with love”. After making her name in the fashion industry designing for the likes of Donna Karan, Missoni and Marc Jacobs, Kate opened her shop, Cardigan, selling her unique, knitted creations - from keyrings to art.
The art collections are detailed, knitted versions of the nation’s best-loved foods, mounted in a box frame. They are colourful and wonderfully witty – a truly unique piece of art. To date there are 4 collections; Comfort Food, Soft Smokes, Cardigan in Bloom and the latest addition, Fish & Stitches.
Fish & Stitches is now running at Castor & Pollux, 164-66 King’s Road Arches on Brighton seafront until the 3 October.
Watch out for the Rob Ryan exhibition too, running at Castor & Pollux from 12 September to 20 October!
