Over the coming weeks I will be creating a new site responsive drawing in the gallery space at HOME Manchester as part of ‘A Fine Toothed Comb’
This autumn, HOME Manchester will present ‘A Fine Toothed Comb’ an exhibition curated by Turner Prize-winning artist Lubaina Himid. Bringing together new commissions by Himid as well as artists Magda Stawarska, Rebecca Chesney and Tracy Hill, A Fine Toothed Comb will centre on unearthing hidden layers within the city of Manchester.
Through four unique installations spanning painting on found objects, multi-screen moving image, site-specific drawing and sound compositions, the artists will each uncover invisible geological, historical, environmental and political layers of the city. From hidden waterways and disappearing wildlife, to lost music and communities hidden in plain sight, A Fine Toothed Comb invites us to look closer at what surrounds us. This is the first time all four artists’ work has been presented together, following many years of discussion and collaboration.
