Alex Wickenden

22 - 27 September 2015

Preview: 24 September / 6pm-8pm / All welcome

 

Alex Wickenden has just graduated from the University of Bedfordshire with a Photography and Video Art BA (Hons) degree. Alex will be presenting a fictive documentary called Vinny and the Verdudes: A Brief History of a Brief Band. This is an archival, multi-platform project about the obscure, conceptual, art-rock, ‘tribute’ band Vinny and the Verdudes, which uses multiple artistic techniques including photography, video, print media, artefact curation and performance in the service of creating a vivid portrait of a specific yet previously unobserved moment in history. The documentary relies heavily on recovered materials and historic ephemera, charting the band’s explorative, yet brief, lifespan.

 

This is Alex’s second time exhibiting at MK Gallery Project Space; last summer he was included in Showcase 2014 for undergraduates.
