Made for 'Reframe', an exhibition organized and hosted by Free Word of 9 comics by 9 nine artists from the UK, Turkey and Algeria; with works by the UK's Hannah Berry and IYLA aka Ed Hillyer. Locke was asked to be a part of the project by Paul Gravett.
Reframe: Perspectives on Europe through comics from Algeria, Turkey and the UK was presented by Comica, Istanbulles with Studio Rodeo, FIBDA, and Free Word in association with ARTICLE 19 and Booktrust and supported by the European Cultural Foundation.
Pioneering artists from three contrasting countries united to create an innovative exhibition of new work exploring their contemporary attitudes to Europe. Bringing together new voices from Turkey, Algeria and the UK, Reframe invited nine emerging artists to use their distinctive styles and viewpoints to 'reframe' perspectives through a series of new graphic short stories that examine the cultural, social and political dynamics between Europe and each of the participating countries.
