Kaspar The 14th Guest is a commissioned sculpture for Kaspar’s Restaurant at The Savoy Hotel London where I spent several months as Artist in Residence.
In 1898 South African diamond magnate Woolf Joel held a dinner at The Savoy for fourteen guests and one cancelled at the last minute. The dinner continued, but one superstitious guest announced that death would come to the first person to leave the unlucky table of thirteen. Joel took that gamble and a few weeks later he was shot dead in Johannesburg.
