Chutney Preserves is a juxtaposition of workplace with exhibition stage, or perhaps more coherently, experimental lab with ceremonial site.
Chutney Preserves was founded in 2005 by artists Captain Marq Kearey and Captain Sarah Sparkes

& The A Band

‘Chutney 7 – The Magnificent Seven’ is a multifaceted, interactive live art event, which draws on the spirit of celebratory public assembly dating back to prehistory. Appearing in the guise of a fete, country fair or rarey sideshow, it is an ‘organic’ public art work, this time featuring belly-talking puppetry. The history of country fairs tells of the use of puppets for entertainment, political satire and instruction. In Chutney Preserves events, artist-made marionettes, together with puppets made by members of the public at on-site artist-led workshops will perform a series of wondrous feats

Initiated in 2005, artists’ collective Chutney Preserves have worked with over 100 artists and participated in six festivals and events including: Lambeth Country Show in Brockwell Park and Camberwell Arts Festival on Camberwell Green. Chutney Preserves manifests for a magical seventh time in 2013 and The ‘Magnificent Seven’ artist/puppets will patrol Braziers park and periodically assembling to perform in the Chutney Marquee. Supernormal visitors can join the merry-making and make their own marionette at Chutney Puppet Camp. When all seven come together something extraordinary will manifest!
Chutney Preserves was initiated by Marq Kearey and Sarah Sparkes and is currently is herded by Sarah Sparkes.
