Lisa Hannigan

Lisa Hannigan

Lisa Hannigan is a Mercury-nominated Irish singer-songwriter. Her debut solo record, Sea Sew, was released in Ireland in 2008, with an American release following in early 2009. The album went double platinum in Hannigan's homeland, Ireland, where her whimsical folk-pop and hushed, soft-spoken vocal delivery appealed to critics and consumers alike. She explored similar territory on her 2011 sophomore release, Passenger. Before beginning her solo career, Irish singer/songwriter Lisa Hannigan made a name for herself as the vocal partner of fellow countryman Damien Rice.

Viktor Wynd

Viktor Wynd

Viktor Wynd is an aesthete and artist with a penchant for curiosities, art, mess, decay, and self indulgence. The Viktor Wynd Museum in East London is arranged with the sensibility of a 17th-century Wunderkabinett. It displays and sells an eccentric and seemingly random collection of objects— everything from shrunken heads to narwhal tusks. For 5x15 he takes us on a tour of homes, private collections and museums that share his fondness for things arcane, desiccated, antique, or just plain odd: from a rambling Devon farmhouse and its historic taxidermy to an Italianate villa in East London to the House of Dreams Museum. His new book is Viktor Wynd's Cabinet of Wonders.
