Also opening last night was Mark Hayward’s latest solo exhibition at the Interchange Gallery in Shoreditch, East London’s newest venue. Showcasing both new and existing work, the Royal College graduate explores a world which mixes fantasy and reality reconciling themes of past and present, offering us a new perspective on strangely familiar scenes.
