HIX LIX – Love Sick

“Food and Art are the perfect marriage” – Mark Hix

CNB Gallery invites you to indulge your senses to the delectable delights of a 3 course HIX menu. The evening will be visually directed by artistic duo and HIX Award finalists, Beast & Burden.  The collaboration will transform our subterranean art space from gallery to pop-up restaurant, surging with sickly sweet opulence and featuring melting sculptural interiors set amongst artwork from Shoreditch based, Jealous Print Studio.

The diners will enjoy cocktails from Black Cow Vodka, the world’s only Pure Milk Vodka, smooth and delicious. Kick back and relax within the unique environment that will pulsate with a kitsch defiance to the inescapable soppiness around this time of year; did someone say Valentine’s Day?! Because love isn’t quite complicated enough as it is.

Beast & Burden will create an extravagant commotion, something totally immoderate, that will soar above all the sickly sweetness you thought you could handle and offer a contradictory love sick story. This is certain to be an unforgettable evening of amusement, an opportunity not to be missed.  


Notes to Editors

Beast & Burden

HIX Award finalists Emily Bridge and Emma Witter are a London based artistic partnership, Beast & Burden. Their work is primarily inspired by food and dining experiences, with a cross-disciplinary practice in set design and sculpture.


Their mutual love of eating and lack of cooking skills has given them an almost childlike fascination with this area. They connect on a shared interest in how social relationships and visual associations are triggered by food. Themes of disgust, humour, fetish and surrealism are common threads of their work.
