People who have saved this event:


The Ryder is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition 'Steam Horses' by British artist William Mackrell. Following the public performance the entire project will be exhibited for the first time as video, sculpture and installation.


In June 2014, the artist travelled through the streets of Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster riding in the classic French "two horsepower" motorcar Citroen 2CV towed by a pair of actual horses. 

The project examines language's inability to define human progress at this delicate junction between natural and mechanical power.
