Brass Art: rock, quiver and bend at HOME Manchester, Manchester Until 1 September 2024 Entrance is free — Visit now

HOME presents rock, quiver and bend, an exhibition from the artist trio Brass Art: Chara Lewis, Kristin Mojsiewicz and Anneke Pettican. The multimedia show spotlights immersive video, sculpture and lens-based works.

Light is the focus of rock, quiver and bend, with the artists showcasing how it can transform materials, whether through analogue, digital or laser-based means of capturing imagery, resulting in very aesthetically satisfying results. Research conducted by the artists at the National Trust property of Monks’ House in Rodmell, the last home of Virginia and Leonard Woolf, and in the archives of Manchester Museum and The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum informs the subject matter and processes used by the artists. You’ll find Brass Art’s scans of Woolf’s writing room, their own portraits in cellophane as well as a sculptural work focused on geology as a way of exploring deep time and space.
