David Coulter presents the world premiere of his re-interpretation of Tom Waits’ darkest, boldest record with guests including Nadine Shah, Sarah Blasko, Dorian Wood and Lisa O’Neill. Released in 1983, Swordfishtrombones marked a new chapter in Tom Waits’ career as he drifted away from the piano jazz club atmospheres towards darker inspirations.

Silver’s installation for London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE creates a surprisingly intimate encounter between the viewer and the artwork. Here, one meets these huge, uncanny forms which speak of the past but are very much of the present.
