The Mail, Maps and Motion event by See No Evil and The WaterShed will take place at Brunel’s Old Station on Friday, August 17.
See No Evil is, in its own words, “the UK’s largest permanent street art project, attracting leading urban artists to produce major pieces of permanent street art across development areas in the heart of Bristol’s city centre.”
They have an exciting program of cutting edge music, commissions with and collaborations by world renowned performers, including artists from the legendary Bristol band, Portishead.
On the agenda for the evening is:
Film Screening: Love on The Wing
Originally banned for its use of risque imagery, Norman McLaren’s 1938 animated advertisement starts with a simple stick figure and builds into a dazzling frenzy of mail-related motion.
Performance by BEAM: The Rhythm of work-a-day Britain
BEAM present a brand new musical and visual performance drawing on the themes of the General Post Office Films.
Performance: Mail, Maps and Motion by Adrian Utley, Joanie Lemercier and special guest performers.
The highlight is a specially commissioned performance exploring the rich heritage of Temple Meads, one of Britain’s most iconic buildings.
Held between seven o’clock and midnight, this is a free event which is extremely easy to get to as it is held in the centrally located Passenger Shed adjoining Temple Meads.
The Passenger Shed benefits from being reachable by train, car, bike or bus, and is also only a short walk away from the centre of Bristol.
