cafe party

For the unveiling of Jupiter Artland’s new cafe extension, the artist Nicolas Party has transformed the space into an immersive and fantastical dining experience, with a distinctive take on the Parisian bistro aesthetic. With faux malachite tabletops adorned with surreal faces comprised of fruits in the vein of 16th century painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, and an expansive mural running through the whole cafe painted in a Hockney- esque palette, Party draws from a myriad of art historical references.

As in his early perfomative dinners – such as Dinner for 24 Elephants, staged at The Modern Institute, Glasgow in 2011, Party has specially designed crockery, menus and furniture for his permanent installation at Jupiter Artland. The surreal and extravagant decor created by Nicolas becomes a stage for an elaborate and unique dining experience.
