Bont cycling shoe [single - donated by Alex Dowsett], collage, acrylic, pen, on enamelled wooden plinth 2014
Signed by Mark Cavendish, Alex Dowsett, Matt Goss, Dean Downing and Sir Paul Smith.

Created to commemorate the famous Smithfield Nocturne cycling event, this artwork is a homage to speed, and the race's unique location - London's Smithfield Meat market - one of the oldest trading markets in the UK.

The ephemera used to wrap this cycling shoe was sourced from the market on a trading day, and includes trader's produce dockets, and a vintage Smithfield postcard.
