Curated in collaboration with art historian Dr Clare O’Dowd and artist / curator John Plowman of Beacon Bureau, No Particular Place to Go? is informed by extensive research into Castlefield Gallery’s archives and exhibition history, exploring this history through the lens of sculpture
No Particular Place to Go? highlights the gallery’s rich history of engagement with British sculpture and the role it has had, and still has as a place for the ‘sculptural zeitgeist’. Artwork in the exhibition date back to the gallery’s inaugural programme which included a solo presentation of work by Sir Anthony Caro (Castlefield Gallery’s ‘Artist Patron’ until 2013).
For this exhibition I showed “Hybrid Herd” found repaired objects, 2010, (previously exhibited at Castlefield Gallery in 2010) and more recent “Turquoise Bag in a Tree” bronze cast of plastic bag, 2016 as shown in The Late Great Planet Earth at Bury Sculpture Centre.
