Day Eight (1)
Underneath the windows are small cupboards with doors that have been left open to reveal objects that give a much fuller picture of the concerns and internal life of each persona.
This is a huge contrast to the 4 screens showing a slide show of Percy Wilding’s tours by bicycle. Now 95 years old he got medals for speed cycling when he was younger but hasn’t been able to do much cycling lately because he has a titanium pin in one of his legs. However, it is his love of photography as well as cycling that have made this Art Trail project possible and he is very happy to talk about all the places he has cycled to and photographed since the 1930s. He was also very happy about the fact that his family, many of whom have accompanied him on his cycling tours, threw a surprise party for him at vestry House last weekend when the Art Trail opened.
