Artists Lizzie King & Craig Tattersall have been working on a commission for the University of Salford, which will be housed in their permanen art collection.The University is closing their current arts facility and building a new purpose built arts center, New Adelphi building. Using a human sized camera, built by the artists, a series of three 64”x 30” images were produced documenting the old arts building depicting the front of the building, the hallway and the studios.
Using a room on the same campus as the old arts building, a room was turned into a camera to take a photograph of the new building under construction. The photograph is made up of 45, 8”x10” sheets of Ilford Multigrade IV black and white photographic paper pieced together to create a photograph that depicts New Adelphi in its setting showing the surrounding buildings of Salford and Manchester City Center. The photograph picks up on the Beetham Tower (Hilton hotel), Manchester Town Hall, The Football Museum, and other prominent landmarks within these cities.
We are delighted to have produced four large format C-Type Matt prints for Lizzie King & Craig Tattersall, which are due to be on display at New Adelphi building from March 2016.
