Hell Cats is an artist book created with the aim of visually representing strong, confident women who ride motorcycles. Join us within the Ways of Learning exhibition at BALTIC 39 to celebrate the launch of Hell Cats, publication created by Jade Sweeting.
Inspired by, and dedicated to every woman who rides a motorcycle, who gets their hands dirty and who wants to be free. "To be free to do what they want to do, to be free to ride their machines, without getting hassled by The Man.” Hell Cats is constructed through found imagery, initially created as an open invitation for people to include their photographs that represent this belief and to be featured in the next issue as on-going project.
