Exhibition: 'penthouse and pavement' by sarah hardacre, the modernist Society
Sarah, who lives and works in Manchester, is a renowned artist who exhibits internationally, her work is held in major public collections including the British Museum and British Council.
Her new exhibition ‘Penthouse and Pavement’ presents a series of collages and prints that use architectural photographs from local history archives, alongside clippings from second-hand pin-up magazines. She is interested in the often stark ‘phallic uprising’ of male dominated modernist architecture as counter to the sensuousness of the female body. Through collage she overlays the two together to critique the biographical fetishism of modernist architecture, and the often-dehumanising nature of the architecture that surrounds her in the post-industrial landscape of Greater Manchester.
Exhibition dates: 1st February - 21st March 2020
Times: 11am - 5pm, Saturday - Wednesday
