Buddleia is a brand new venture that wants to work with artists to engage with the context and communities of places. My inaugural programme of work is set in Cheetham Hill, North Manchester. It is a six month research project where I have invited four artists to spend an extended period of time to explore, understand and question what is going on in Cheetham Hill. As part of this project I also intend to open a project space in one of the unused shop units on Cheetham Hill Road.
The artists engaged to work on this project with are: Alison Kershaw, Jai Redmond from UHC, Neville Gabie and Can Altay.
More information on the artists will follow soon on the Artist page.
This website will chart the first tentative steps of Buddleia and the development of our time spent in Cheetham Hill. I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship
