The exhibition will start on 17 November and will run for three days. Featured artists include Catherine Borowski, founder and managing director of agency Produce UK, as well as Lee Baker and Olivia Hegarty, who will present art surrounding the Beckettian theme of morality and showcase a bleak outlook on human existence.

Artists will explore personal themes of loneliness and doomed connections to others. Borowski will use her art to illustrate her London upbringing in a council flat, as well as the passing of her Islamic mother, who died on a pilgrimage to Mecca. 

Baker's art is influenced by the Japanese concept of 'mono no aware' - the pathos of things. The Japanese symbol of the flower references the sad beauty in the mortality of living things, and the ways in which temportality leads to decay. Baker's paintings aim to pinpoint the moment where decay begins by separating the flower from its context.

Hegarty's work is based on the themes of migration and movement and she creates porcelainesque forms that represent human commonality. 

In October, Produce UK staged a rare poster exhibition with Japanese retail brand Muji. Artistic culinary architects Bompas & Parr staged an exhibition exposing the darker side of food storage, which launched on 31 October.
