Yesterday, I installed 10 prints from the Bristol series of Bike Portraits in the Showroom on College Green. The rest of the series will be shown via a pedal powered projector on the launch night.
I will be sharing the Festival Showroom with bike ghost sculptures by Tim Floyd, cyclotrope by Tim Wheatley, boneshaker prints and artwork from the papergirl project. There will also be a bicycle library and place to sit and read… exciting!
The launch is on friday 16th from 6.30pm.
I’m very pleased to be invited to be part of the upcoming Bristol Bike Festival -‘a festival that celebrates the wonderfulness of bikes made by the people for the people of Bristol’.
I’ll be showing some of the Bristol Bike Portraits I took during my fieldwork this year. This will be the second exhibition of Bike Portraits – the first was in Hackney last month in five bike shops and cafes throughout the borough. The event was launched the event with a Private View Bike Ride. More here.
This time, a selection of printed portraits will be displayed in the main Festival HQ – The Showroom (old co-op shop) College Green. I am hoping to project more of the images via a bike powered projector (as per the rough sketch below). I am also very excited to announce that Jet McDonald who recently returned from a year long cycle tour from Bristol to India and who features with Jen in one of my portraits.
The exhibition opens on Wednesday 14th September and runs until 25th September.
The launch is 6pm Friday 16th September.
