All below the work, 2019
Soot, Glass, Steel.
All below the work, follows Leighton-Boyce’s interest in social-history and the politics of labour and a body of durational works which explore the materiality of drawing in a three-dimensional sculptural expression. The work emphasises bodily and spatial concerns through both its production and viewing experience. Through a simultaneous action of accumulation and erasure the interstitial characteristics of the sooted surface cause the supporting material to withdraw, affecting environmental and sensory relations.
Exhibited in NOT PHOTOGRAPHY, Bankley Gallery, Manchester. 2019
