Simon & Tom Bloor’s “As long as it lasts” exhibition at Eastside Projects, Birmhingham, UK. source

I came across images of “As long as it lasts”, a new exhibition by Simon & Tom Bloor at the Eastside Projects. It is an installation incorporating potted plants, birch trees, and text art. Yes!

  • One of the first things I did upon arriving for the Breathe Residency is buy a potted plant with the idea of incorporating it into an installation.

  • The Bloor brothers’ past work includes really great text-based flyers. I’ve also been drawing little signs lately.

  • The Bloor brothers are also exhibiting billboards in Leicester, and one of the other billboard artists is April Gertler, who I went to school with in Oakland, CA in the late 1990s.
