Ever found it hard to convey the experience of a fast motorcycle ride to other people? Stop/Action attempts to do just that by suspending 11 Aprilia RSV 1000 Rs and one Aprilia RSV4 in a three-dimensional ribbon running throughout the 26x3 gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Inspired by stills from a high speed film reel, the installation was conceived by Sam Strauss-Malcolm and Tyler Poniatowski.

Stop/Action will be open to the public 2-7pm every day from October 2-11. 26x3 is located at 26 Broadway, Brooklyn, New York.

There's an opening reception tonight, 1 October, from 6-9pm, if you'd like to attend, please RSVP by emailing us.

Stop/Action is sponsored by Aprilia USAAlpinestars, LeoVince and Everard Findlay with special help from Aprilia Brooklyn and Aprilia Potamkin Manhattan.

Hell For Leather presents Stop/Action

NEW YORK (October 1, 2009). The dramatic experience of an explosive motorcycle ride is coming to the 26x3 gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Stop/Action will suspend 12 exotic motorcycles (11 Aprilia RSV 1000Rs and 1 Aprilia RSV4) in a three-dimensional ribbon running throughout the space, reminiscent of stills taken from a high speed film reel.

Stop/Action will be open to the public 2-7pm every day from October 2-11. 26x3 is located at 26 Broadway, Brooklyn, New York.

"The experience of riding a fast motorcycle to the limits of its and your ability defines the soul of a biker. We hope to convey that in a visual, three-dimensional way, allowing the audience to interact with and examine its meaning, motivation and ramification," says Sam Strauss-Malcolm who, along with Tyler Poniatowski, is one of two artists behind the installation.
