Title: Bristol, Texas
Date: July 2013
Exhibition: 34 Bristols
Location: Arnolfini, Bristol, UK.
All photographs are by Paul Blakemore.
As part of a larger project to draw connections and responses from different Bristols around the world I worked with friend and Austin based artist Nicholas Don to respond to Bristol, Texas. Our aim was to deliver a slice of Bristol, Texas to Bristol, UK.
The project included:
Me opening a package from Bristol, Texas and displaying the items – including candies & edibles, part of a door and a DVD about Christianity.
Drinking iced tea & wine and doodling pictures with Bristol, Texas.
A wall of photographs and email correspondance I had with Bristol, Texas.
A neon Dallas sign that was placed outside the MShed and visible from the window of the Arnolfini through binoculars.
This way the audience could see the bright lights of Dallas in the distance.
