Tattoo exhibition reveals the lives, loves and loss behind our body art

A Mobile Tattoo Parlour has been touring Knowle West this summer, digitally collecting people’s pieces of body art. This September we’re holding special preview event where you can find out what the Parlour has discovered…

I Will Always Have You is a collaboration between KWMC, Stand + Stare and Play Nicely. It explores Bristol’s tattoo culture and the fascinating stories behind why people have tattoos – a heady mix of lost loves, raw regrets, and personal memories.

The preview event will take place on Thursday 11th September, from 5.30-7.30pm. You will be able to:

  •  Watch tattooing live and close-up
  • Play with interactive tattoo installations
  • Explore tattoo culture
  • Enter a free raffle to win a tattoo

Also, join Dr John Troyer from the Centre for Death and Society at the University of Bath to explore the history and cultural role of memorial tattoos.

If you would like to come, please reserve your place at iwillalways.eventbrite.co.uk or call 0117 903 0444.

Drinks will be served; ink will be spilled…

Nicholas White – photographer in residence

Over the last few months Nicholas White has been working as photographer in residence at Knowle West Media Centre, developing a new commission: “The Five Thousand Island Forest”. Based in Okehampton (UK), Nicholas’ work is themed around landscape, exploring narratives related to human intervention, the environment and the ways in which we interact with our natural spaces.  “The Five Thousand Island Forest” is a landscape exploration of Knowle West –  more details will be available soon.

Nicholas was awarded the South West Graduate Photography Prize in 2013 for his work “The Militarisation of Dartmoor”, which is currently exhibiting at Green Hill Arts. The prize was established by Fotonow in 2010 to ‘showcase photographic work emerging from the region to a national audience.’ Nicholas and the finalists of the 2013 prize – Katie Emmett, India Pocock, Matthew Sheather, Patrick Graham, Sydney Cunningham and Katy Brothers – will have their work exhibited at KWMC from 28th May.

Below are some behind-the-scenes photos taken by Nicholas during shooting for “The Five Thousand Island Forest”.
