YNH X REBECCA CLEAL – You’re Not Human will present a unique exhibition featuring a series of new works by photographer and print-maker Rebecca Cleal on Saturday 8th October at The Old Coroners Court, Bristol, 7-10pm.
The culmination of a 3 year collaborative relationship between Rebecca Cleal & You’re Not Human, this exhibition of screen printed photography celebrates the darker side of Bristol’s music scene. Whilst You’re Not Human are well known for their heavy and uncompromising contribution to the live music landscape of Bristol, it’s Rebecca’s photographic documentation of the events that has given a distinct sense of shape and presence to the scene outside the performances themselves.
The exhibition will serve as both a reflection upon and celebration of the music scene itself. Presented against a backdrop of noise (Silver Waves) will be 14 new editions, each image carefully selected from Rebecca’s canon of work and reproduced using screen print techniques developed over the past two years at the artist’s print studio.
This is the first exhibition to arise from the collaboration between Rebecca and You’re Not Human, and is set to be an event that ties together art, music, and performance documentation in a resounding new way. Rebecca Cleal is a photographer and print-maker, her work focusing largely on music photography and video, and more recently on the underground music scene in Bristol. Rebecca’s photographs have featured on magazine and album covers, as well as music websites and blogs, and she is regularly commissioned for her press and photo-documentary work.
As print-maker, Rebecca works predominantly in screen print, developing new works and techniques at her 11 year running print studio, White Duck Screen Print. Screen prints will be available to buy in strictly limited editions at the show on the 8th, and online from October 10th. Editions measure 50cm x 70cm, and will be priced at £125 unframed. All editions will be signed, numbered, stamped, and blind-embossed by the artist.
A 70 page book by Rebecca Cleal will also be available at the event. Carefully curated to accompany the show, this book will contain 32 double-page photographs that Rebecca has captured at You’re Not Human shows. The book is published by White Duck Editions, will be available in a first edition of 100, and priced at £15.
Pre-orders for the book can be made at:
