this is the end

Dear all,

"Visitors" has come to an end. The exhibition was open to the public for 19 days and during that time it was visited by almost 250 people. The response has been overwhelmingly positive; apart from good reviews, we heard stories of photographic experiences, favourite cameras and family photos - and we were even hugged!

We would like to wholeheartedly thank Migle Backovaite, Nóra Barabás, Nathan Duarte, Dai Howell, Hanan Kazma and Birgit Zartl for agreeing to participate. 

Running the exhibition has been a very rewarding experience and it gave us the push to continue. We gave our project a name - the*kickplate*project and the next exhibition is called "behind her 'I's", opening for three weeks on the 3rd of August at the same address.

So thanks again to the artists and to everyone who came, some more than once, and for all the help and support we got from the local community and our families. Diolch!

You can continue to follow our project on our new blog.

We are now trying to raise funds for our project and gallery through kickstarter - please take time to have a look at it and share our project with others - we would really appreciate your help!

Thank you and see you soon,
Zosia and Dafydd

gallery panorama

Dear all,

here's a full panorama of our pop-up gallery, almost as wide as in reality, so if you move the bottom tab to the right, you'll be able to see it in its full glory, and catch a glimpse of our secret garden and our awesome lilac chair. 

Enjoy the last moments of Visitors as much as we do!

P.S. Not Visitors-related, but we have just found a petition aimed at saving one of the biggest photographic archives, which is destined to be destroyed after it's been digitised. We find it absolutely heartbreaking and outrageous, so please follow the link and sign, for the love of photography.

We start our second week

Today marks the beginning of our second week. 

The first week went really well and the number of people coming to the exhibition has already exceeded our expectations, so we'd like to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit the exhibition so far. We'd also like to let anyone still considering visiting us know, that the exhibition will be open for another 2 weeks - so you still have plenty of time if you're planning to come from a little further away.

If you'd like any information about any of the artists, exhibition or directions on how to find us, you can contact us any time.

Dear all,

just to let you know we're having a couple days' break from posting photos of the walls, 

so as not to spoil the surprise for those of you who come to the exhibition.

Meanwhile, we're thinking about how to turn this project into something more permanent.

We'll keep you posted!
