All Roads Lead to Rome

Chris brings his performance lectures to Chelmsford for the first time, starting with All Roads Lead to Rome and returning with Antarctica in November.

In 2012, after painstakingly and lovingly repairing his father’s Triumph Herald Estate, Chris embarked on the road trip of his life. On the long drive throughout Italy Chris retraced his father’s steps as a soldier in WW2 alongside the conception of his beloved family car.

Now Chris has turned that trip into an acclaimed performance lecture (as a sculptor it came as a surprise to him too!) Join him as he recaps his journey, as part investigation into the Italian Campaign of WWII and part critique on our increasingly materialistic culture.

With nothing more than a powerpoint, pointy stick and some of his kinetic sculptures, Chris explores the surprising connections between communism, consumerism and classic car mechanics.
