it's live!

a couple of days ago i made a little journey up to birmingham to see the grand unveiling of the pointe blank exhibition ... i realised half way there that i had forgotten my camera, so unfortunately i don't have any shots from the night apart from this quick one luke took on his phone (thanks luke) i managed to refrain from sticking my leg up on the bar and posing like a ballerina for the shot

the exhibition was held in one of the birmingham hippodrome dance studios, a very fitting venue i thought. i'd only seen a few little snippets of people's work before the exhibition so i was eagerly awaiting seeing the whole collection together on display ... and ohmygosh it didn't disappoint! i was really impressed by the quality of all the pieces and how unique they all are - despite all being based on the same brief. but you really shouldn't just take my word for it, take a look for yourself. the collection is now available online for your viewing pleasure - keep an eye on the pointe blank blog for photos of the opening night, and also future updates relating to the project (there were talks of the work possibly being shown at different venues this summer)
exciting stuff

i personally would like to say a massive thank you to claire hartley and rob lindsay for inviting me to be part of such a brilliant project, and also a big well done/pat on the back/high five to them for making the exhibition such a big success
