Hackney exhibition where visitors cycle between venues
A new kind of exhibition which encourages visitors to cycle from venue to venue launches in Hackney this weekend.
Bike Portraits has been organised by University of East London post-doctoral research fellow, Kat Jungnickel, as part of a sociology research project on cycling in the UK.
Twenty five portraits made up of photographs taken in and around Hackney will go on show in five shops and cafes - inlcuding Wheels Good in Stoke Newington Church Street, London Fields Cycles in Mare Street, and Look Mum No Hands in Old Street.
Kat said: “People cycle an incredible range of bicycles, wear all kinds of clothing and experience the city in ways very different to that of drivers, pedestrians and public transport users. These portraits go some way to reflect the unique character of cycling and intimate relationship between people, their bikes and the borough.”
The exhibition runs until the end of August.
