Bristol 2015 Lab, Bristol Harbourside

Part of the PHPC15 Cultural Programme, supported by the Wellcome Trust.

Sam Winston is an artist and story-teller from London. He creates sculpture, drawings and books that question our understanding of words as messages and information. His use of drawing, cutting, folding and typography produces new work in which complex ideas are expressed clearly and logically- an art form so necessary in a world where the financial and media text surrounding us is so often impossible to process.

Birthday is a work that addresses this subject by using drawing and storytelling to give us a context in which to understand some of these larger movements in life.

Members of the public will collaborate and draw circles alongside Sam Winston to remember people they knew and know, and register their names in writing.

Presented in collaboration with Antlers Gallery.

Presentation at Mayfest supported by the Wellcome Trust.

Fri 15 - Sun 17 May, 10am - 6pm

Price: Free

Age: All ages
