Control is ever present. We move from one enclosed environment to another: from the family environment to school, from school, to work. We are required to negotiate a network of roads, public spaces and buildings, in a manner dictated to us. We are required to pay our taxes, to conform to a generally accepted aesthetic, to remain compliant as part of a process in which the operation of a mass of society is maintained.
CONTROL examines these elements of power, regulation, supremacy, mapping, repression, restraint and domination within the context of the Modern City. Presented at EASAHQ, at the edge of the Manchester City Centre, CONTROL is a presentation of drawing, sculpture, photography, graphic design, video and performance by emerging and established artists based in Manchester
