Brian Sweeney Exhibition – Brick Lane
Photographer Brian Sweeney is having an exhibition at the Folk Store, 11 dray Walk, Truman brewery London, from Thursday 8th September for four weeks, with an opening launch on Thursday 8th from 7-9 pm at the same address.
The show is called were the antelopes sleep and its an ongoing project,its part of two projects “the great stadiums of europe” stadiums found around europe mainly lower league or non league,a hark back to days when football wasnt about airline companies sponsering teams ,overpriced tickets and overpaid players,more about the community aspect of the sport,the images are always empty,because in a sense they are architectural as well as social,as the architecture reflects in many cases the main industries of the places they are found in,through the materials they are built with, and accordingly a reflection of the communities themselves.
The antelopes sleeps are the places i find peaceful in between shooting these stadiums.
All the images have previously not been shown and are part of an evergrowing body of work.
