Dreaming of Dead Fish

A solo exhibition by artist Hannah Leighton-Boyce, commissioned by Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival.

Hannah Leighton-Boyce (b. 1980, Stroud) lives and works in Manchester, England. Her sculptural works range from site-specific and ephemeral actions, to drawing, sound and installation. Recent works include a collaborative live sculpture made with residents of Helmshore, Lancashire (2014), set within the context of the area’s industrial heritage; and an audio installation at Touchstones Rochdale (2016) funded by a New Opportunities Award [New Expressions3], which explored ideas of disembodiment and labour through the resonant properties and work history of objects within the museum’s collection. Instruments of Industry was pressed on 10” vinyl and released in 2017 with Folklore Tapes’ Industrial Folklore Series.

Recent group exhibitions include Excuse Me While I am Changing, Rogue Projects Space, Manchester; New Work, The Manchester Contemporary 2016; Women Artists from 1861 -2015, Touchstones Art Gallery, Rochdale; For Posterity, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (2015); People and Process: A history of Salts Mill, Salts Mill, Saltaire.

Please note this exhibition is only open during selected times: Wednesday – Saturday, 12noon – 4pm
