Castlefield Gallery Associate Enya Koster was selected from an open call to develop a text-based response to the exhibition Archives At Play 2 (26 March 2023–4 June 2023), alongside invited artists and exhibition contributors, Grace Collins and George Gibson.

The exhibition is the second in a two-part series inviting artists to delve into Castlefield Gallery’s archive. Led by curator Thomas Dukes as part of a collaborative PhD between Castlefield Gallery and Manchester School of Art at Manchester Metropolitan University, Archives at Play is a research project that seeks to activate the archive.

The events are curated by Laura Mansfield from Castlefield Gallery and texts published as pdfs in collaboration with Corridor8 and designer Ashleigh Armitage, part of a two-year collaboration. Commissions and publications are supported as part of a collaborative bursary programme.
