The Sudden Opening of Little Leaves is the name of a journal entry by poet Sylvia Plath and also the name of the latest exhibition at Pictorum Gallery, showcasing the work of Tuesday Riddel, Emily Pope and Polina Pak. Each artist explores personal narratives of grief, life, death and the ritualistic practice of making work. The work pulls from a network of stories, ancient practices, and new narratives around loss and transformation and will be open to the public from November 16.

Australian chef John Javier is introducing a new Chef’s Studio experience at The Tent (At the End Of The Universe). Guests will be led down a soundproofed stairwell to a hidden basement, where Javier will be personally guiding guests through a special eight-course set menu. The experience is available to book now for groups of up to 12 people and marks a return to the playful Chinese food that Javier is known for.

JJ Guest’s “The Other Team” opens at OOF Gallery 

Artist JJ Guest’s latest exhibition, “The Other Team,” is launching at Tottenham’s OOF Gallery on November 17 and will run until December 23. Guest uses the visual language of football to tackle homophobia and prejudice in wider society. It lays bare the violence, hypocrisy and double standards that members of the LGBTQIA+ community have to face. Prejudice and bigotry, community belonging, erasure and disappearance, and communal bathing are all explored through the medium of subversive sculpture, so be sure to check it out.
