In 2002 two minds collided within a vacuum. The fallout from which resulted in the appearance of the omnipresent Frank Bobbins. Part slapstick fool, part futile and pointless object; Frank soon began his mission.
Within the following year ‘The Bobbinist Manifesto” was drawn up and work began to illuminate the void.
Ten years later and the Frank Bobbins Institute (F.B.I.) draws close. The artspace is found, the artists are ready, work continues at pace; 2012 sees the new phase for Frank Bobbins. In 2013, the anniversary of the manifesto, a new public space will open. You will all be invited. Watch this space.
For now, here is the final few lines from
The Bobbinist Manifesto
Bobbinism is the stepladder with which to see above the crowds
Take off your shackles of what should be and create what is.
Have no worries
Have no pressures
Have no regard
Create the present for the future with a respect for the past,
but most of all
have a good time whilst you are at it.
Bobbinism has a smile
