This 16:9 billboard is a continuation of Caitlin Akers' research into the language, history and poetry of boxing and the lives of her ancestors who were famous boxers from Salford in the early part of the 20th century.

About

Akers' work touches on ideas of class, barriers, divides, masculinity, fighting and talking. The photograph for the billboard was taken by the artist at the Eccles Boxing School - a boxing gym situated in an old cotton-spinning mill in Salford.

16:9 is a billboard attached to the yard-side of Kingsgate Workshops and visible from the street and from Kilburn Grange Park.  Kingsgate Project Space commissions new works from emerging and established artists specially for this site
