In December 2016 theatrical performance company Traces presented an immersive experience at Fenton House, Hampstead. For one month the National Trust property was transformed by over 80 invited artists, as guests were invited to wander through the abandoned rooms and unpick the secrets of the Gee family. Fictional narratives were interwoven with factual discoveries and site-specific installations, as visitors explored the reimagined Georgian house with map and candle in hand. Included in the specially commissioned objects was an 8-course menu of scented napkins in the dining room created by AVM Curiosities. The installation fused 18th century napkin folding techniques with modern flavour encapsulation to create the historically inspired sniffable menu.
