In 1985 David Byrne wrote the song ‘In the Future’, that laid out propositions or perhaps prophesies about the future as he saw it then. The lyrics describe a future through a series of paradoxical statements that now seem strangely prescient in describing a complex reality where contradictory truths co‐exist.

Beautiful Monsters exhibition at The Portico Library, Manchester

May 16, 2018

Curated by Anya Charikov-Mickleburgh

Artists: Donal Moloney, Laura Dekker, Henry Hussey, Ed Saye, Dina Varpahovsky, Eugene Strelkov, Anya Charikov-Mickleburgh.

Seven artists engage with the unique collection of books of The Portico Library. The collection began with the foundation of the Library in 1806. Today it provides a tangible insight into the Georgian and Victorian culture of Boomtown Manchester, reflecting the literary, intellectual and cultural mindset of the men who founded the Library over 200 years ago and of their successors throughout the 19th century. There is a wide selection of travel literature, novels, biographies and history. Exhibition will open on 17 May and run until 30 June 2018.

'Something changed over the years and I started to think more about how I looked... It's difficult to get rid of once it's in your mind, it's like a poison, you begin to look at your life through the judging eye of someone else. It's a difficult way to live.' 

Assemblage is an arts magazine run in association with City & Guilds of London Art School Fine Art Department.  Written by artists, Assemblage aims to create a dialogue across mediums, genres and concepts and features interviews with emerging and established artists that are intended to mirror the discussions that take place between artists in the studio. In this issue I discuss my work with Megan Elliott, editor-in-chief.
