Ride was commissioned for Turning the Season, a major exhibition playing with the idea of the Season – the social elite’s summer of balls, races, festivals and regattas – and spanning photography, film, sculpture installation and performance. The third of Protein’s commissions from The Wapping Project responded to the sports aspect of the Season with a duet between Ascot lady and jockey, performed by Charlotte Broom and Omar Gordon
Ride, played as if coming out of nothing and disappearing into nothing, was atmospheric and fun; Jules Wright described the work as “…extremely provocative and sexually, sensually in your face. […] A commentary on class and aspiration.”
“Vivid storytelling… astounding piece of work.” The Reviews Hub
