'Collectionistas´ Risograph print exhibition.

About

25 posters by collectors, artists, photographers and designers. Records played by connoisseur record collectors and refreshments will be available. I love the obsession inherent in collecting. The completist, whether finding that all-important last football sticker to finish their sticker book or one of those committed men (more often than not) standing on a rainy platform furtively scribbling down train numbers. The amateur hobbyist, complete with vast selection of frogs/bottle tops/records/paper fruit wrappers/tram tickets/ whatever; I always admired those kids at school who had a million different shaped and coloured erasers. I loved their dedication and their neatness and I got dizzy just trying to imagine how much pocket money they got... It´s all valid! There something religious about this devotion. It´s repetitive, inspiring and, well, ultimately pointless. Long live the anoraks! Kavel Rafferty. (curator) Printing by Hato Press London Prints will be on sale on the day and at The Mill Co.
