Our very own photography genius Carrie Davenport will be in The Mac on Monday 6th October with a special ‘Talking Tatts’ exhibition.
Carrie has photographed many of the worlds biggest musical stars, features in Kerrang, NME and shoots every festival and gig you can think off on both sides of the Atlantic… this is not to be missed.
Having teamed up with local musician Paul Kane, the brains behind ‘Over The Hill,’ ‘In The Mood’ and recent collaboration album ‘Velvet Revolution,’ they will be in exploring the story behind the tattoos of some of our best known musical artists and industry professionals. Body-art, as a tattoo shop noted, the ultimate permanent art form, has become the vernacular, no longer being the sole trade of bikers or deviants, reaching across all classes, sexes and ages.
Carrie and Paul will focus on how musicians and members of music industry, choose to be permanently creative with their own bodies, the designs they choose, the sentimental or memory based reasons behind ‘inked’ and ultimately, why they are such an addictive art form.
This will be portrayed through portraits and a video installation where intimate and honest narratives are shared.
The exhibition starts at 7.30pm.
