France redux

September 14, 2011 § Leave a comment

Well, here we go again – like this time last year, Wideyed are heading back to France.

It won’t be exactly the same as last year though. This time we’re taking some newspapers. Loosely inspired by Rob Hornstra’s ‘On the Other Side of the Mountains‘, with some of our 2010 images we’ve put together a newspaper that we hope will also work as a newsprint exhibition.

I’ve been obsessing about newsprint since January 2009, so it’s about time we finally found a good reason (and the means) to use Newspaper Club. Our newspapers are 64 page monsters but there are only 10 copies – two are for our archive, two will be somehow hung as an exhibition at the château where we’ll be in residence again, and the other six? Not sure. We may just drop them in local cafés and sneaky photograph people looking at them. Or something.

Wideyed has also just invested in a projector that has a pretty decent throw. We think we might be able to use the façade of the château as a screen. When we mentioned this to François (our host), he instantly requested anything Wallace and Gromit, so we might be doing a bit of impromptu open air cinema too.

And who knows what else might happen?

Back early October!

Cheers, Lucy
