Merry-Go-Round Broke Down at AIR Gallery in Altrincham, Altrincham, 17 April–12 May 2018, free entry - Visit now

Merry-Go-Round Broke Down provides a social commentary on the expectations and stereotypes of the art world, through playful pop-culture references, dark humour and satire.

Providing a distraction from the serious works usually found within a gallery, many of these works challenge the nature of the contemporary art world through the use of banter, slapstick and playful commentary. In this way the gallery is transformed with the use of sculptures, props, animation and visuals to become a fragmented animation set but devoid of any characters, allowing the visitors to take on this role as they explore the show at AIR Gallery in Altrincham.
