When I was given the chance to have my very own, very first, very last minute exhibition at Kilau, I leapt at it! Because so much of my photography this year has been prompted by our joint projects, I asked Lola if she would like to fill one wall with work of her own… and she said yes.
So yesterday we spent two hours hanging our work!
Instead of using frames, we opted to hang our prints by pegging them to bits of ribbon. The end result was pretty pleasing – reminiscent of darkrooms or of fluttery washing drying on a line.
Hanging the first couple of prints was terrifying, half expecting the staff to all start pointing and laughing at our attempts to pass ourselves off as artists!
But they didn’t.
Kilau’s a lovely laidback place; the only restrictions on us were to remember it’s a family venue and not to use velcro! We were even allowed to draw on the walls – and we found clues to old exhibitions still lurking on them, too.
And before we knew it… we were done!
(I should point out, we’re not responsible for the ace lightshades!)
Time to head home and rest up for the opening night!
