Chris Paul Daniels: Is there anybody there? at HOME Manchester, Manchester 17 February — 4 June 2023 Entrance is free — Visit now

The third of HOME’s trio of spring exhibitions: Is there anybody there? by artist filmmaker Chris Paul Daniels is now on display. Visit HOME for a healthy dose of art with the impressive line-up of current shows – Chris Paul Daniels’ display is accompanied by Nick Jordan: Natural Interaction and Parham Ghalamdar: Painting, An Unending.

For the display, Daniels has sourced 70 different films from the North West Film Archive at Manchester Metropolitan University and edited them together. The result is a grand filmic study of cultural traditions, ceremony and place.

The artist’s work often responds to place and collective memory, merging careful observation with fictional narrative. Viewers familiar with his previous pieces will notice that in the work presented at HOME, we are guided by the unseen presence of a disembodied voice and an original musical score composed by collaborator Graham Massey.
