“This spring, activate your senses and rescue your mind.”
The tag line for Broadgate’s newest exciting pop up in the heart of the city almost says it all.
Tucked behind busy Liverpool Street station, Exchange Square is the home of the brand new immersive art exhibition, “Sense of Space”. hosted by Broadgate, one of the city’s largest retail and office estates, and you really don’t want to miss it.
Broadgate pride themselves on having a packed calendar of events open to the general public including pop-ups, experiences, music, art as well as loads more and ‘Sense of Space’ is their newest edition.
Focusing on engaging your senses, the various rooms art and are designed by artists to transport you from the bustling city into a completely new dimension of wonder and mindfulness and it really does make you think.
You are blown away as soon as you enter and are met by Mr Doodle’s crazy characters which cover the walls and the furniture immersing you in a whole new world. This is the first time I have come across Mr Doodle’s art work and I love it.
It’s fun, crazy and completely immersive, just how I like art to be and I’m hooked. While it’s still great to look at photos of his “spaghetti graffiti” (for more, please check out his Instagram here), there’s something more about being in this room that really makes the art come to life and this is the perfect opportunity to experience his work first hand.
My favourite of all the rooms though has to be The Infinity Garden. It’s created by Early Hours, a London based floral design studio which makes it’s name by pushing the boundaries of modern floral art installation and this stunning spectacle is nothing short of magical.
Seriously, I felt like the fairy queen I always wanted to be as soon as I stepped through into this dreamlike forest of lights and beautiful blossom trees.
The use of music and light scents also adds to enchanting feel of the room and the city outside simply melts away with your stress.
There are two more rooms (including the Zen room and the human activated art) and I could literally go on and on about how much I love this space, but the only way to see it is to experience it yourself.
It’s open now until the 18th May, so don’t miss your chance. And the best part is – it’s free!
