I Am This Motorcycle

Jean-Philippe Defaut

Closing Night Thursday March 3rd, 5-8pm

A journey into the world of motorcyclists and their stories.

"As long as I can remember, the possibility of moving forwards, be it on a bicycle, a skateboard, in a car and more specifically on a motorcycle has always been part of my life. It fascinates me how rolling the throttle and releasing the clutch generates motion… It is a very personal thing, yet there are so many others across the world who share the same passion as I've discovered on this journey." — Jean-Philippe Defaut

An immersive experience featuring large-scale portrait photography, interviews, sculptures, archival ephemera and commissioned works by other artists. "I am this motorcycle" is an ongoing conversation, a portrait story with fellow motorcyclists and motorcycles: their rides, travels, challenges, encounters, designs, engineering and evolution.
