Works in Progress
Exhibition Continues: 29 Jan-22 Feb
During January and February we're doing things a little differently at AIR with two exhibitions that are 'Works in Progress'. Both shows will alter and change over the course of 4 weeks and result in a closing event with live performances, workshops and demonstrations.
Gallery One: The Last Supper
Gather around the dining table of 2050 and experience dining in a post-climate-breakdown world. We invite you to interact with the exhibits to explore how might we harvest, prepare, nourish, consume and enjoy food in an environment in which mass extinction and climate change has devastated the food chain.
The dining table will be the platform for our research and interactions over the exhibition period. Over time the table will begin to tell a story through hand made objects, utensils, satirical graphics, food stuffs and tonics that explore how the dining experience might look, feel, taste and smell as a result of climate change.

Gallery Two: Clay: In Residence
Clay::Body is a 4 week, artist in-residence undertaken by ceramic artist Gabriella Rhodes at Air Gallery, Altrincham. The residency is running in conjunction with Ella Boston’s exhibition 'The Last Supper' 28th January - 21st February 2020.
Clay: In Residence is an immersive installation of clay and objects set in a temporary, curated studio space. Raw, dry and fired material have been displayed alongside sketches, tools and studio furniture. The residency is a meeting point between ideas and processes that aim to explore the possibilities of the material and its relationship to the space around it.
