AboutJohn Newling is an internationally known artist recognised as a pioneer of public art with a social purpose, and during his PH1 residency during July 2014 he investigated what people in York really want.
This exhibition contains some of Newling's interim findings and works, including sculptures he used to gather texts from the public, film works of performances, prints and copies of the 206 texts gathered.
The exhibition includes two limited edition prints of John Newling holding his 'Adam and Eve' sculpture in front of York Minster. Each giclee print is in an edition of 5 and available to purchase for £310 (framed).
You can watch a short documentary about the first stage of the residency on the gallery website.
