In pictures: Produce UK's art exhibition at Hoxton Arches

Creative agency Produce UK launched its 'You Get What You're Given' art exhibition yesterday (17 November).


The exhibition aims to illustrate themes of death, isolation, complexities of existence and decay. Featured artists include Catherine Borowski, managing director of Produce UK, as well as Lee Baker and Olivia Hegarty. Borowski's artworks explore her upbringing in a London council flat, alongside the recent passing of her Islamic mother who died on a pilgrimage to Mecca.

When discussing the relationship between her artistry and the agency, Borowski said: "At Produce, we are an artistic event-making and place-making industry, and it's really important that everyone who works here is culturally aware, and I encourage everyone to continue their own personal practice. We want to invest in doing our own, self-funded art exhibitions. All our clients are highly creative."

As well as Borowski's artwork, Baker displayed his Japanese-inspired art, which focused on the sad beauty in the inevitable decay of living things. Hegarty showcased a hanging structure using filo pastry, which would disintegrate when touched, demonstrating the elegant fragility of existence.

Borowski told Event about Produce UK's plans for the new year. She said: "We're launching a roving gallery, a new space next year, which came about while I was trying to find a space to exhibit in during Freize [art festival]. All the spaces were booked up, so I decided to build my own. So now it's going to be a year long piece, and every month we'll invite different artists or curators to take over the gallery and do a site-specific installation. It will be a roving gallery that travels around London, or even around the world because it's completely portable."

The exhibition will remain open until 20 November.

In October, Produce UK staged a rare poster exhibition with Japanese retail brand Muji and in August, Laurent-Perrier champagne unveiled an Art-Deco themed retreat at Wilderness festival.
