The Autobiography of A Super-Tramp takes its title from a novel by W H Davies published in 1908. Davies left his native south Wales for America and meandered across the States and into Canada via railroad in pursuit of opportunities and, in many ways, happiness before eventually returning to the UK. His travels are documented as a long saga, reminiscent of Don Quixote. The episodes paint a picture of a man for whom standing and staring was desirable but the urge to stay on the move was ever present.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Unit #1, a new rolling programme of exhibitions and projects will present new and recent work from three artists throughout the duration of The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp.
Artists include: S Mark Gubb, Rachel Calder, Paul Emmanuel, Matthews and Allen, Peter Finnemore, Paul R Jones, Rebecca Gould, David Shepherd, Huw Andrews, Owen Martell & Simon Proffitt, Bedwyr Williams and Cerith Wyn Evans.
