Produced by Castlefield Gallery ‘Host’ comprises of nine bronze casts of wild plants that typically grow in forgotten urban spaces. Emerging from the fabric of buildings, foyers and pavements across Spinningfields, ‘Host’ highlights the politics of public and private space and represents an unexpected counterpoint to the built environment, using the traditional material of memorial public sculpture.
