Apollo Tapes

Andrew is exhibiting a new video work in a brilliant new art show called 'Life on the Road'.
From Hunter’s documentary of everyday life on the road, to Fawcett’s meticulous record of traveller buses, and Gaston’s elegiac split screen film, 'The Apollo Tapes', this exhibition is both celebration and memorial. It captures a remarkable moment in time, in the 1990s, when young people travelled around Europe in a variety of vehicles adapted as homes, forming transitory communities based around festivals, music and a shared rejection of the increasingly consumerist values of Western society.
Travelling in decommissioned buses and vans, these new explorers constructed a vision of a kind of utopia, which is now embedded in our collective memory of the 1990s.
