Hsiao-Chi Tsai & Kimiya Yoshikawa: Scintilla from our sun

27 September 2014 — 29 November 2014

For Asia Triennial Manchester 2014 Hsiao-Chi Tsai & Kimiya Yoshikawa have been commissioned to make a major new, site-specific work for the recently opened, Bury Sculpture Centre. This piece has been inspired by the historical identities of the town and also the surrounding cultural quarter. The new Sculpture Centre is a hub of the Irwell Sculpture Trail and this landmark work will be installed at the entrance, contrasting this fine, Classical stone building, to coincide with the launch of the Asia Triennial Manchester. Bury Art Museum will also feature a major
exhibition of Tsai & Yoshikawa’s work, bringing together sculptures which will be collectively grouped to form a dialogue as one new work. This installation will create a refuge, a glimpse into an enchanting other world, a utopian vision and an uplifting escape from apparent conflicts which continually dominate society.
