“The Ghost Bus” is back in the Land Of Robin Hood… Don’t miss the special event on next Wednesday June 5, 2019, from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ, promoted by ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) and its founder Marysia Zipser. This story began in Beeston-Nottingham in October 2014, when I spent some hours in Bartons huge garage of vintage buses and cars.
I was really impressed by one of the oldest buses, the so called “The Ghost Bus”, a piece of history of English public transport: it’s a URR 865 vehicle AEC Reliance made in 1956! Simon Barton told me that a vehicle-sister of the “ghost bus” was documented in 1959 on a wonderful and unmissable film telling a beautiful journey through Italy by a group of English ladies and gentlemen (above: the original movie).
So, I took lot of photos around that old bus and then I began to create for my “Lacer/actions” project concerning realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial tokens and materials. The whole project consist of 3 short movies (included “Land Rover Mapping”) only for public performances.
The Ghost Bus project with its short films and musical compositions, some from local singer-songwriter, Jeanie Barton means this one off event has come to its spiritual home.
This special Ghost Bus event – “In Conversation with… .Roberto Alborghetti” takes place on Wednesday 5th June from 7 pm at The Gallery, 43 High Road, Beeston, NG9 4AJ.
Tickets are available from Eventbrite: £12.50 | £8 — (£15 on the door)
