So this was our first Papergirl Ride Day in Beautiful Cape Town. We decided to give art to Woodstock. It was an unthinkable experience…
driving through the streets of vintageville
peeling street art
bells & whistles
past facades hand painted in type faces
clouds with sunshine
slow moving traffic
we were children of the wind / kinders van die wind
it was one of the best days of my life!
Papergirl is an art project which, in the style of american paperboys, distributes rolled art pieces by bicycle to random passers-by in the streets. It consists of an exhibition, the action (distribution of the art) and a party.
The project was founded in Berlin by Aisha Ronniger and has been carried out once a year since 2006. Now Papergirl has spread and also took place in our City, Cape Town, this is a video clip of the first Ride day, 26th June 2010 in Woodstock, Cape Town.
Papergirl is, in short: participatory, analogue, non-commercial and impulsive.
