The Infinitesimal Atom /Ardwick Built
Last night we opened Ardwick Built at the Pool Arts Studio.
I opened up my studio space to show The Infinitesimal Atom - a small installation that uses images and text that raise questions about the way we manage homelessness.
Resembling an alter, complete with candles "flowers" (actually plants gathered from the derelict site of the former direct access hostel) and a monumental image of a crumpled sleeping bag - taken near the same site on Downing Street, Ardwick. The piece also contains text from 1890 essay by Oscar Wilde that demands more than charity or alms for the poor - it demands a transformation of society.
