Artist Richard Ansett returns to Hull, the home of his unknown biological mother to use the whole city as a gallery on Mother's Day.


Over a two-day stay in the city centre,  Ansett observed women whom he imagined as being of my mother’s age. He followed them and took photographs on throw away film camers within the landscape of the city, imaging that the women might be her.

These early images recording the movements and interactions as a therapeutic act are the core of the project, which have been produced in the form of 100 'lost pet' style posters. he is returning to Hull in this important year as city of culture to re-introduce the images to the scene of their creation, using the whole city as a gallery on Mother’s Day.

Installation locations will be published on twitter and the Facebook events page on 25th March.
