Might and Main is a project exploring the mechanisms and celebrating the outputs of the artist led- researching the importance of place and space to artistic production from Manchester city centre artist led studio and project space The Penthouse.
At the centre of Might and Main are artist residencies taking place at The Penthouse project space. To explore the situation of The Penthouse- this can be geographically, architecturally, physically, culturally, politically or otherwise. Artists are encouraged to explore the geographic environment of The Penthouse- looking outward past the rooftops into the city beyond our walls.
As a response i took up an interest and situated myself in an old office space. The space had traces of activity and mechanisms making up the building past. i wanted to focus on leaving something of me in the space and highlighting the functionality of the building.
