A new exhibition in Ancoats looks at the problems for generation rent.

Penny Anderson’s exhibition, “Let Me Stay” at Manchester Creative Studio in Blossom Street in association with the Social Action and Research Foundation, presents work that interrogates the modern fact that we do not remain in a rented home for a life-time, with many tenants having to move house every six months.

Glasgow artist Penny Anderson’s first exhibition inManchester uses the traditional craft of embroidered labels attached to read-mades such as doll’s furniture and crockery, samplers which are all placed within this installation to explore precarity and insecurity – to contribute to a much needed debate on the condition of houses not being homes for many people in society.

 Manchester Creative Studio, 16 Blossom St, Manchester, M4 5AW from Saturday 26th March to Tuesday March 29th, between 12pm and 5pm.
