A new exhibition at Bury Sculpture Centre will celebrate 25 years since the start of the Irwell Sculpture Trail.
Brass Art have been commissioned to create a new piece of work for the exhibition, which runs from 17 February to 2 June.
Brass Art are Chara Lewis, Kristin Mojsiewicz and Anneke Pettican, three artists based in Manchester and Glasgow. Their relationship with Bury began in 2000 with their exhibition Paradise Revisited, leading on to their inclusion in the Text Festival (2005), Not At This Address(2009) and Time for Light (2013).
At the heart of the Bury exhibition, entitled that-which-is-not, will be a miniature 19th Century bone and ivory pagoda. A souvenir replica of a long-destroyed original tower in China, it was unearthed by Brass Art in Bury Museum stores in 2000. The artists now revisit this artefact as the centerpiece of a rotating, immersive shadow play, Still Life No.2, in which the artists’ 3D printed bodies are brought to life.
Brass Art’s From the Tower Falls the Shadow (2005) can be seen at Radcliffe Metrolink station and forms part of the Irwell Sculpture Trail.
Bury Sculpture Centre is open from 10am to 5pm (Tuesday to Friday) and 10am to 4.30pm (Saturday).
