Strange Face – Adventures with a lost Nick Drake recording. An exhibition of photographic work by Michael Burdett part of Basingstoke Festival
4th July – 10th July
The companion piece to the exclusive performance on 17th June. This one off exhibition in Basingstoke follows the story of Michael Burdett’s journey around the country, taking in all 41 counties in the UK (!) and features the photos which hold stories in themselves. Not every subject knew Nick Drake’s work before they heard the new ‘Cello Song’, and the photographer has included all reactions, good, bad or indifferent, much to his credit (not everyone likes Nick Drake, after all!) The exhibition works in much the same way as a Nick Drake song does, pulling the audience into its own privacy. It’s an oddly personal journey, full of famous faces.
