Omid Asadi – Hansel and Gretel (2021), online, 30 January–27 February 2021, free entry - Visit now

Artist Omid Asadi invites us on a journey highlighting hidden aspects of the city below our feet. Whereas the story’s original protagonists are seduced by a trail of sweets, Asadi instead paints a trail of discarded and now inedible chewing gum, transforming them into canvases on the greystone pavements forest.

Asadi is an artist whose practice is concerned with the human condition, the relationship between migrants and the new places and contexts they find themselves in. This new work has been created in response to his current exhibition Autopsy of a Home at CFCCA (temporarily paused due to the UK lockdown).

Collaboratively commissioned by PROFORMA and CFCCA, the work will first be presented as part of LOITER, PROFORMA’s one-day live public art exhibition which connects Manchester with Salford, happening on Saturday 30th January. You can follow LOITER live on the 30th, or catch Hansel and Gretel on the CFCCA website throughout February.
