Motopoétique - Shaun Gladwell Approach

Motopoétique – Exhibition

From the 21st of February to the 20th of April 2014, at the Contemporary Art Museum, an artistic and poetic look at the world of motorcycles. 

When you read the name of this exhibition, it may seem like a contradiction in terms: what does biking have to do with poetry?

A visit to the exhibition provides the answer. More than 200 works show us that the relationship between Man and Machine, such as the experiences felt at the handlebars of these speed machines, ultimately finds expression in the eulogising of sensations and thrills. Through the highly original contemporary works by the 42 artists being shown, the exhibition gives a fascinating insight into biker culture.

While it would be a stretch to say that every biker has a hidden inner poet, the things that make their world a frightening and brutal place can sometimes become things of sensitivity and wonder through a flight of fantasy or snapshot.

See the world of biking and powerful machines through a fresh pair of eyes.
