An Interview with the Quay Brothers at BFP15: Installation at Redcliffe Bridge, Bristol

Music: ‘Tasogare’ from ‘Strange birds with human voices’ courtesy of Tim Nelson.

As part of this year’s Bristol Festival of Puppetry, The Quay Brothers have created a unique installation for the Redcliffe Bascule Bridge Control Room. Peer through windows of this disused room, once a critical space in Bristol’s commercial shipping heyday, and discover a landscape upturned in a moment of convulsion. Entitled “Homage To The Framed Perspective Of An Abridged Conversation Between The Painters Sassetta & Uccello And The Mystical Occurrence That Happened Before Your Arrival”, this installation can be seen at the Redcliffe Bascule Bridge, Redcliffe Way, Bristol, until 18 Sept 2015.
