In a lively reinterpretation from transcript to comic book strip, Serpentine Gallery Director, Hans Ulrich Obrist’s interview with Ashley Bickerton is remodelled here as a comic strip set in the red light district of an anonymous Eastern metropolis. The pair are seen conversing in bars and moving through the colourful streets and strip clubs of the night as they discuss Bickerton’s early ambitions to be a writer, his passion for surfing, island life and dialects of the English language, amongst a raft of other interests and influences. An extensive anecdotal discussion and narrative leads the reader through the artist’s varied life.
