Claire Barrow for Galeria Melissa Covent Garden

Galeria Melissa in London’s Covent Garden has launched a new multi-sensory exhibition with London-based designer Claire Barrow.

Claire is the latest in a series of collaborations between the plastic shoe brand Melissa and designers including Gareth Pugh, Jeremy Scott and Vivienne Westwood.

Dancing with Dreams brings together art, sculpture, film, garments and music. Claire has made five sculptures from found and recycled materials, clay and acrylic which will be mixed with digital projections of actress Sameena Jabeen Ahmed, Michael Clark company dancer Harry Alexander, LGBT and social activist Michael Peacock, vocalist Beatrice Brown and performance artist Amy Kingsmill and music commissioned by Claire and composed by Kenichi Iwasa ( Xaviers) and Taigen Kawabe (Bo Ningen).

Dancing with Dreams is free and open to the public at Galeria Melissa, 43 King Street, London until 15 May.
