Hen’s Teeth & Fatti Burke: The Snug

Hen’s Teeth, Blackpitts, Thursday 29th July - Sunday 15th August

Hen’s Teeth & Fatti Burke present THE SNUG: an immersive installation celebrating the beating heart of the iconic Irish pub, in partnership with Guinness.

The Snug is an exhibit at Hen’s Teeth gallery where everything has been designed by leading Irish illustrator Fatti Burke. Her playful illustrative style will bring THE SNUG to life – her artwork runs across everything from the coasters on the table to the prints on the wall and memorabilia hanging around the place.

“I wanted to create a place of surreal familiarity on the walls of The Snug, covered in graphic artwork and nostalgic ephemera. There’s a shared longing for warm nights in the pub with your favourite people, and I took this longing along for a cheeky ride. Snugs have a comforting feeling and you want to leave them covered in jokes and brightness and freshly made memories. It’s about fun and Irishness and the power to be found in having a laugh,” says Fatti Burke, illustrator.

The past year has been marred by missing out on things. From missing friends and family, events that should have happened, sad moments, happy moments – the ability to be together through thick and thin.

In Ireland, The Snug is the ultimate representation of being together: cosying up to loved ones in about as intimate a place as possible sharing delicious, creamy pints, laughs, tears, memories, while crowded into the nook of your favourite pub, one that’s seen it all and has the memorabilia and decor to prove it.

Hen’s Teeth has partnered with leading Irish illustrator Fatti Burke to celebrate The Snug in Irish culture through an installation that will pop-up in their Blackpitts, Dublin 8 gallery in summer 2021.

Visitors will be allowed in groups of two (to allow for social distancing) to enjoy the things they’ve missed over the past year: a beautiful pint of Guinness, hanging with your pals and an exhibition.
