The Lowry has launched a new exhibition pioneered by artist in-residence Jo Lathwood.
The title of the show ‘Making Up’ is inspired by Salford’s history pre-containerisation, when ‘maker ups’ would package items from cotton mills and factories into boxes.
In response to this history Lathwood will be spending four weeks at The Lowry creating and dismantling a pathway, before re-shaping the wood into reusable boxes to be distributed to the local community.
Lathwood said: “I’m really interested in journeys and how we travel through life, physically and metaphorically.”
The exhibition places significant emphasis on sustainability; the materials are all repurposed from previous theatre shows and exhibitions.
The show will continue until March 3 and the gallery is free to enter Tuesday-Sunday until 5pm.
