In the unit opposite our studio Small Things have been rehearsing for their up and coming performance at the Whitworth Art Gallery.
I grabbed them briefly for a quick plate.
The unit is on the other side of the building so the light is totally different to the studio. Thursday I was getting 5 seconds at the same time of day. For this plate we had a long 20 seconds. They gave it a good go but without braces/support I think it was a little too much for me to ask and I didn’t want to eat into their rehearsal time too much.
The Resonance of Seclusion
Written and Directed by Liz Postlethwaite
7pm on 5th and 6th October, Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.
In the year 2000 artist Joash Woodrow left his home in Leeds for the final time to move to a new life in sheltered housing in North Manchester. Having lived as a recluse for almost 40 years few people could believe what was discovered when the contents of the house were finally revealed. Despite his apparent seclusion Joash had painted and drawn throughout his life filling, the rooms of the normal suburban semi with over 700 paintings, 3000 drawings and hundreds and hundred of books.
Join small things to discover an extraordinary story inspired by one man’s unstoppable drive to create and the equally unstoppable support of his family that made his artistic life a reality.
A story of amazing discoveries, journeys that last over the years and brothers quietly growing old together.
