The Shop at Bluebird proudly presents ‘If Chairs Could Talk‘ a solo installation by artist Yinka Ilori. Launching to coincide with London Design Week the installation will run for a six week period.

In this body of work he will present a series of five chairs, using each of them as a narrator to create a captivating collective of modern art that mimics characters from his childhood. More specifically the exhibition focuses on the well-known African parable “Despite How Long the neck of a giraffe is, it can’t see the future” creating a thought provoking installation that gives the audience an insight into the artists journey to adulthood.
