“Let Me Stay”: Exhibition on Housing Insecurity in Manchester


Glasgow artist Penny Anderson’s first exhibition in Manchester, in association with the Social Action and Research Foundation, presents work that interrogates the modern fact that we do not remain in a rented home for a life-time, with many tenants having to move house every six months.

‘Let Me Stay’ uses the traditional craft of embroidered labels attached to read-mades such as doll’s furniture and crockery, samplers which are all placed within this installation to explore precarity and insecurity – to contribute to a much needed debate on the condition of houses not being homes for many people in society.

The exhibition will be held at Manchester Creative Studio, 16 Blossom St, Manchester, M4 5AW between Saturday 26th March to Tuesday March 29th.

Opening private view 6-8pm Friday March 25th.
