People who have saved this event:


Former ladies outfitter, Rachel was dissolved in August 2015 after 32 years trading. In its wake a fashion model poster in the stairwell of the shop fades through the passing seasons.


Over time, permeated by dankness and desaturated by UV, an image once intended to sell an aspirational lifestyle invites melancholic narratives. The façade of advertising is shown to be flimsy and ephemeral. Similarly, the veneer cracks on the material face of the high street to reveal a slow death.

…blip was conceived as a temporary diversion on a shopping street in crisis. In its concluding show we ponder whether the town centre’s maladies can be healed. 8 Victoria Street’s interior reveals much about its past. What hope is there for it‘s future?
