Max Patté Experience

Limehouse, London

The Max Patté Experience:
hosted by Ian McKellen at his Limehouse home

The Limehouse district on the River Thames: a place with a history that’s
steeped in adventure, trade, art, and intrigue. Where the lime and opium-laced
air once formed the backdrop to the ferment of England’s golden era of world
trade, and where Sir Walter Raleigh set sail on his third voyage to the New
World.
Little wonder it’s a place that has inspired artists and writers. Francis Bacon
lived at number 80 Narrow Street, where “the constant interplay between the
great expanses of the sky and water creates the impression that one is on the
edge of a limitless world.” It was the hub of the artist’s legendary entertaining and where he infamously first met his great love and muse, George Dyer,
when he broke into Bacon’s house as a burglar.
The Limehouse district also captivated the young Charles Dickens, who
walked its streets over 40 years. In the opening chapter of his novel, Our
Mutual Friend, he wrote fondly of Narrow Street’s historic pub, then called The
Bunch of Grapes as “a tavern of dropsical appearance…[reminiscent of] a
faint-hearted diver, who has paused so long on the brink that he will never go
in at all.”
Today, Narrow Street is home to Ian McKellen, who continues its vibrant
lineage of artistic endeavour. In 2011, Ian acquired a sculpture by British-born
artist Max Patté, and installed Reflection at his Limehouse residence. The
figure looks down into the River Thames, deep in contemplation of the river’s
past, present and future. In 2013, Ian added to his collection the sculpture
Another Time by Anthony Gormley. Installed in the River Thames, this work
was “designed to be placed within the flow of lived time.”
The Max Patté Experience was activated on October 2 - 14, 2016
at the home of Ian McKellen. The proceeding document shows installation
views of sculptures and lightworks, signature cocktails and canapes, and other
highlights at this 18th century five storey home on the River Thames.
