Artists: Paul Bramley, Nicola Ellis, Alyson Olson, Polly du Cros
20 September – 11 October 2017
Four artists will take up residence at The Great Medical Disaster to make sculpture in response to the internal architecture of the space.
Developing a dialogue between each practice, they will discuss mutual motivations of process, materiality, Arte Povera and the Baroque.
You are welcome to view and discuss the works at the open event on Thursday 5 October 6.30 – 9.30pm or by appointment until 11/10/17.
TRANSFUSE: three weeks of sculpture at The Great Medical Disaster is supported by Castlefield Gallery’s New Art Spaces.
