The 29/07/12 saw the opening of pop up exhibition Kicks On Film at V22 in Bermondsey, London. An afternoon and evening based around the screening of a broad selection of sneaker documentaries was supplemented by a sneaker installation comprising of 1500 photographs of sneakers displayed as a single artwork on a wall 15 meters long and 5 meters high.
Taking its inspiration from Flight Club in New York, the installation was designed to showcase the variety and abundance of Nike models both old and new as well as the rare and historically important. The images (all sourced from Sneakerpedia with no repeats) included portions of famed collections from the likes of DJ Clark Kent, Bobbito Garcia, Grandmaster Caz and Mayor. With such an abundance and diversity of sneakers on display it could have been billed as the perfect collection. With the deliberate incompletion of the last row one was led to believe that there is no such thing as the perfect collection as no collection is ever really complete as long as new sneakers are being made.
