Kieran Leach, Best of Both Worlds, 2018

Tipping the Scales at Paradise Works, Salford, 3–31 March 2018, free entry - Visit now

Tipping the scales is the inaugural exhibition presented by Kieran Leach and Precious Innes under the moniker Show.me.up. The curatorial duo will program a series of exhibitions, the first of which will take place in the Paradise Works project space (Salford).

With an emphasis on sculptural work, Tipping the scales features artists at various stages in their careers. Throughout the exhibition there is a sense of art imitating life, as the artists tackle notions of work, play and societal pressures. From daily routines and ingrained behaviours, to social tropes and leisure pursuits. The group exhibition concerns the perfect ‘work/life’ balancing act we are all striving to achieve.  Humour runs throughout. Elements of the artworks on display induce a sense of nostalgia, a look back to simpler times perhaps, exemplifying notions of childlike escapism. The exhibition acts a survey of our collective consciousness, and endeavours to physically manifest our attitudes towards matters that sit upon the scales of life.

Artists: Corey Bartle-Sanderson, Alexander J Croft, Richard Hughes, Precious Innes, Kieran Leach, Sam Porritt, Sara Procter, Gwyn Williams and Alistair Woods.
