‘Chutney 7 – The Magnificent Seven’ is a multifaceted,
interactive live art event, which draws on the spirit of celebratory
public assembly dating back to prehistory. Appearing in the guise of a
fete, country fair or rarey sideshow, it is an ‘organic’ public art
work, this time featuring belly-talking puppetry. The history of country
fairs tells of the use of puppets for entertainment, political satire
and instruction. In Chutney Preserves events, artist-made marionettes,
together with puppets made by members of the public at on-site
artist-led workshops will perform a series of wondrous feats
Initiated in 2005, artists’ collective Chutney Preserves have worked
with over 100 artists and participated in six festivals and events
including: Lambeth Country Show in Brockwell Park and Camberwell Arts
Festival on Camberwell Green. Chutney Preserves manifests for a magical
seventh time in 2013 and The ‘Magnificent Seven’ artist/puppets will
patrol Braziers park and periodically assembling to perform in the
Chutney Marquee. Supernormal visitors can join the merry-making and make
their own marionette at Chutney Puppet Camp. When all seven come
together something extraordinary will manifest!
Chutney Preserves was initiated by Marq Kearey and Sarah Sparkes and is currently is herded by Sarah Sparkes.
