Inspired by the original Roth Bar & Grill restaurant located onsite at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Roth Bar & Grill combines gastronomy with contemporary art and is a vibrant, informal and convivial eating-place, serving honest, simple and seasonal food with a focus on sustainability.
Diners will find themselves surrounded by artwork installed in salon-style on the walls of COBO House, as co-curated by K11 founder, Adrian Cheng and Hauser & Wirth President and Co-Founder Iwan Wirth as they hope to incorporate Hauser & Wirth artists alongside works from Adrian Cheng’s private collection – including paintings by Mark Bradford and Zhang Enli. The presentation is also in homage to the original restaurant environment in Somerset, where the walls are adorned with an intimate and highly personal, salon-style array of works that intertwine with the themes of food, animals and the countryside.
Internationally-renowned landscape architect, Piet Oudolf, will also transform COBO House into a mesmerizing space with his flowers and foliage hung from the ceiling, in homage to the perennial meadow that sits behind the original farm buildings comprising the Hauser & Wirth Somerset galleries.
Throughout the duration of the pop-up, selected works for sale from Hauser & Wirth’s contribution towards the COBO HOUSE installation, as well as additional works following the same themes, can be viewed in Hauser & Wirth’s online viewing room at www.vip-hauserwirth.com
