Elise Ashby and Lisa Denyer: Strata at PAPER, Manchester
Lisa Denyer

PAPER gallery presents Strata at PAPER Gallery, Manchester 14 August — 18 September 2021 Entrance is free

Strata is a two-person exhibition featuring new work by Edinburgh-based artist, Elise Ashby and Manchester-based Lisa Denyer and curated by ‘the Fourdrinier’ writer, Laura Harris. The show takes its title from the processes of layering present in both artists’ work. The exhibition is the result of a year-long process of conversation between Ashby, Denyer, and Harris, in the supportive and generative context of a wider project with artists and writers developed by PAPER Gallery in Manchester. The scheme, initiated by PAPER and generously funded by Arts Council England, has partnered artists with writers in experimental pairings, each of which will result in an exhibition of new work at the gallery.
