Charles Avery brings components of his imaginary Island to east London. The Islanders’ main city, Onomatopoeia, appears at St. Katharine Docks as part of a large-scale installation incorporating sculpture, drawings and posters. Significant features of the Island, such as trees and gods are displayed for one night only, as well as its main trade: eel hunting. A cocktail bar much loved by the Islanders, The Egg Eating Egret, operates from the premises of the White Mulberries café all night, serving custom-made egg cocktails to the public, while locals from the Island may appear unannounced. Promotional posters for the Eternal Dialectic, the leading cultural event of Onomatopoeia, are also brought to the streets of the East End through a flyposting campaign.

Charles Avery’s project is supported by St. Katharine Docks and Elephant Gin. Further thanks to White Mulberries, Vital Arts and Barts Health NHS Trust.

Art Night 2017 is a free festival of contemporary art presented in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery and curated by independent curator and writer Fatos Üstek. The festival is supported by international auction house Phillips, and receives public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
