Gilles & Cecilie, a French-Norwegian art and design consultancy based in London, will take part in this year’s Village Fete at the V&A; Museum.

The Village Fete is the V&A and Scarlet Projects' contemporary taking on the traditional English fete, providing an extraordinary array of creative, fun, engaging and imaginative events and games by leading, as well as up-and-coming designers.

Gilles & Cecilie is taking the classic game ‘Pass the Pigs’ into a new dimension by creating life-size pigs (made with foam and fabrics) for the audience to throw onto an allocated ground space. The main goal is to make the pig land with its jowl to the ground supported by an ear and a front trotter to gain the highest score. The prizes will be scrumptious parts of pigs.

The stall will be bulging with handmade velvet trotters, cotton twill sausages, leather and silk bacon rashers and the top prize a pigs head made with love and care, all stuffed with cushion soft filling.

Gilles & Cecilie Studio provides graphic design, illustration, and research for various clients in a wide range of sectors. Their signature large scale wall paintings have been commissioned by Paul Smith, Pepsico, HÅG and Harvey Nichols amongst others.

Friday 25 July at 6.30 – 10pm
Saturday 26 July at 1 – 5pm
