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 35 year 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 two sculptures, “Hybrid Herd” previously exhibited at Castlefield Gallery in 2010 and “Turquoise Bag” a bronze cast of plastic bag, previously shown in a solo exhibition The Late Great Planet Earth at Bury Sculpture Centre in 2016.
