‘Transfiguration’ exhibition at Cirque de Demain (Paris / 2016)


I just got back from Paris where I exhibited ‘Transfiguration’ at the prestigious contemporary circus festival ‘Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain‘.
The exhibition was a complete success, seen by a total of 15,000 people over the course of 4 days (January 28-31).

Located at the entrance foyer / corridors leading into the main dome space at the beautiful Cirque Phénix tent in Paris, the show was seen by all of the attendees of the festival.

There were 20 prints on display hung on 6 walls.
Each print is now a one-off and available for sale at £250 each.
Limited edition prints are available as well.
To purchase please email: therealbenhopper@gmail.com
All funds from these sales will go back directly into funding the development of this project.

Details of prints:
C-type on Fuji Crystal Archive paper with a semi-matt finish, mounted on 5mm Foamex PVC board, protected with a layer of matt lamination.
Edition: One-off signed by Ben Hopper.
Size: 21″ x 28″ each (aprox 53cm x 71cm).
Made at theprintspace.

The exhibition was funded with the help of my recent Kickstarter campaign “‘Transfiguration’ Photo-Project Exhibitions by Ben Hopper“.

‘Transfiguration’ will exhibit next at The Roundhouse as a part of their CircusFest month-long festival this coming April as well as at theprintspace Gallery as a solo show in the first two weeks of April.
More dates / cities TBC.
