Assembly is a new immersive installation by Holly Rowan Hesson at Bankley Gallery in Levenshulme, Manchester. Preview Friday 18 March 2016 6-8pm, all welcome, then continues Sat 19 March, Sat 26 March and Sat 2 April 12-4pm. "Holly Rowan Hesson makes abstract works that derive from the photographic capture of colour, surface, shadow and light in specific architectural and man-made locations. They emphasise the fragility, transience and ambiguities of what may initially appear solid, weighty and permanent. Blurred uncertainty disrupts the reading of the rich colour and complex surface of her projections, prints and ephemeral installations.
&Model invited Hesson to undertake a residency with a resulting solo exhibition of new work in the &Model gallery space which concluded on 5 March 2016. The show has been receiving positive feedback and leading on from developments made with us I'm looking forward to seeing Hesson's brand new installation at Bankley Gallery.” – Derek Horton, Co-director, &Model, Leeds
This solo show at Bankley Gallery is as a result of winning the 2014 Bankley Gallery Open Call and forms the conclusion of a year-long Arts Council England Grants for the arts research and development award.
This installation will be the first show in Bankley Gallery's newly refurbished gallery space, which is just five minutes by train from Manchester Piccadilly.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Specific support towards this exhibition also from Matthew Pendergast and Lisa Denyer.
