Lovin’ My Bike is on the facade of 7 Tontine St, Folkestone
People have fascinating relationships with their bikes. For some, their bike is a pure convenience, practical and free, getting them from A to B. Others guiltily neglect their bikes, abandoning them in sheds, gardens & bike racks. But for others, it’s a soul mate requiring tender maintenance and attention lavished on each part. Sometimes it’s a love/hate relationship, a torrid affair.
The two BMXs of this installation, of course, epitomise the latter, at least during people’s braver years!
