Castlefield Gallery need your empty suitcases!
Castlefield Gallery are in search of suitcases for their forthcoming exhibition Life in the UK / Balance of Probabilities with Istanbul based artists Osman Bozkurt & Didem Özbek of the interdisciplinary project space PiST/// for the Asia Triennial Manchester 2011.
Castlefield Gallery will be transformed into a VISA application centre for the 8 weeks of Asia Triennial Manchester 2011 for which artists Bozkurt & Özbek wish to erect a huge sculpture created from luggage in the impressive double height space of gallery.
We need suitcases of all shapes and sizes and they can be new or old, battered, bashed and well travelled.
Suitcases will not be altered or damaged in any way to create the sculpture and will be labelled with your name on delivery. However suitcases with slight damage will still be of use to the artists.
Suitcases should be delivered to Castlefield Gallery by 6pm on Wednesday 28 September and will be ready for collection during the week commencing Monday 28 November 2011.
If you have a suitcase that we can use please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 0161 832 8034.
