Henge to Henge

SHOWING 7th to 21st May 2019

Gabrielle Motola will be in the gallery on Saturday 11th May to meet people, talk about her trip and sign books.

From Stonehenge, England to Arctic Henge, Iceland: A photographic adventure on a Kawasaki TR250 motorcycle.

‘On September 11th 2017, I left East London on my Kawasaki TR250 motorcycle. The first stop was Stonehenge in Amesbury, England. I then headed to the Arctic Henge in North East Iceland.

The route took me via Europe, the Faroe Islands, and then onto my home in Reykjavik, Iceland via the Northern coast. The bike, made for riding around dirt tracks was admittedly on the small side for such a journey, however, perfect for Iceland. We both arrived in one piece on October 9th, 2017.’

‘Riding a motorbike is incredibly thrilling for many reasons, but what makes it most so, is that while on one, you are immersed in your surroundings and connected - to yourself, to the machine and to the road. Riding is a meditation. So much of modern life is constructed to keep us out of our environments, disconnected from them, or each other. “Safe”. This is an antidote to that.’

- Gabrielle Motola

A book of photographs from the exhibition will be on sale in the gallery.
