Launch Pad: CURIO CURIA at Castlefield Gallery, Castlefield, 1–10 September 2017, free entry - Visit now

CURIO CURIA is a Launch Pad exhibition at Castlefield Gallery, formed in collaboration between CG Associate member and multi-disciplinary artist Marie Jones (aka Kochi Kochi), and New York City born, Manchester-based artist Stina Puotinen. The artists will use this Launch Pad as an opportunity to collaborate on a durational, evolving, and experiential sculptural installation, using Castlefield Gallery as their place of meeting and making.

CURIO CURIA will focus on where the artists’ individual practices connect through object and image making, allowing this collaborative process to be public as the work evolves. The pair will combine their collective experience manipulating found objects including sometimes foodstuffs, to create sculptural elements that play with distortion of scale, material, veracity and humour. Elements of the work will be added to, elaborated upon, moved and removed over the course of the exhibition. The installation will be, by turns, a gathering point for conversation, play, experimentation, work, and spontaneous collaboration amongst themselves and others.
