Launch Pad: It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

Castlefield Gallery

A group project from Graeme Durant, Jemma Egan, Florent Dubois, Lindsey Mendick, Suzanne Posthumus and Josh Whitaker.

Castlefield Gallery's Launch Pad series gives emerging artists, writers and curators the chance to use the gallery as a test bed for the production, display and consumption of contemporary art.

Next up in the series is 'It Was a Dark and Stormy Night', a group project by six artists based in the UK, France and The Netherlands, which takes its title from the regularly parodied line that begins Edward Bulwer-Lytton's 1830 novel 'Paul Clifford'.

Tapping into the sense of melodrama associated with the infamous opening line, the artists will forge a story together beginning with 'It was a dark and stormy night' to prompt creativity and indulge imagination, whilst celebrating the farcical and light-hearted side to their practice.
