solo exhibition: Supersymmetry by artist liam fallon at the turnpike leigh
The Turnpike is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by artist Liam Fallon. Since graduating from Manchester School of Art in 2017, Liam has garnered praise for his bold and ambitious sculptures that explore the themes of identity, sexuality, monumentality, and the blurred boundaries between public and private spaces. He uses industrial materials such as steel, Jesmonite, rubber and wood, and adopts factory processes learnt from his father and grandmother, such as casting, welding and joinery.
In his graduation year, Liam was awarded 2nd place in the Woon Foundation Painting and Sculpture Prize at Baltic 39 Newcastle, the Manchester Academy of Fine Art Graduate Award, and the Manchester School of Art Alumni Prize. He was also listed by The Double Negative in a shortlist of the best Fine Art Graduates, and has been the focus of feature articles by Young Artists in Conversation, and Floorr Magazine as a significant emerging talent.
Exhibition ends 7th September
