Spinningfields Art Commission 2016: ‘Host’ by Hilary Jack – Flyer Artwork

Following on from 2015’s inaugural Spinningfields Art Commission, the estate has continued its commitment to art in the public realm with Host by artist Hilary Jack, produced and curated by Castlefield Gallery.

Host comprises a number of discreet bronze sculptures of hybrid wild plants that typically grow in forgotten urban spaces. Emerging from corners of buildings and hidden spots across Spinningfields, Host represents an unexpected counterpoint to the built environment, using the traditional material of imposing public sculpture to create a series of fragile, natural forms.

Spinningfields Art Commission 2016 promotes the work of the Manchester Homelessness Charter, with each bronze sculpture being auctioned to support the Big Change Fund. Throughout the exhibition period, narratives will be woven in gradually to each piece telling the hidden stories behind our development as a city and community; search #SpinArt2016 and #MCRHomelessnessCharter on Twitter to find out more.

Soko were commissioned to produced the official flyer artwork for this fantastic project.
