The Fireworks

Where: Oxford Rd, Manchester, – 0161 235 8888   map

When: 5th Feb –  Summer 2011.


What: Nick Crowe & Ian Rawlinson

An unabashed homage to the exhilarating explosiveness of fireworks, this video shows a display of pyrotechnics that was set off in a gallery at FACT in Liverpool.

The black box of that video room, like the  one within which the work is shown her at the Whitworth, is an unnatural  location for fireworks.

The room is internally bombarded and  filled with colour, sound and smoke, but manages to contain the energy  of the display within its four walls.
