Next week I will be working with students from Morpeth School in Bethnal Green to produce a large scale banner based on the working methods and styles of Haitian tap tap painters. The finished banner will be shown alongside the sign made for Tele Geto during the last Ghetto Biennale and the video documentation of its making. The exhibition will take place at the Portman Gallery, Morpeth School, Portman Place, London E2 0PX. There will be a wine reception in the gallery from 6 till 8 on Thursday March 21st. All welcome.
This video was shot during the 2nd Ghetto Biennale in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in December 2011. It documents the painting of a sign I commissioned for a special Ghetto Biennale tap-tap truck, intended to promote Ti Moun Rezistans’ Tele Geto project during the event.
I just came across this exciting new serialized film called Tap Tap made by Zakmel Films (director Zaka, producer Melanie Reynard, director of photography Germain Jn. Luccere). The film will be subtitled soon.
There’s more information about the film on Youtube and at the Facebook site.
