Major project:

This Must Be the Place

This Must Be the Place investigates St. Peters Field, a section of central Manchester that played host to both the Peterloo massacre, 200 years ago, and an influential Sex Pistols gig, 43 years ago. The project explores the overlaps between the two events, the site on which they occurred and offers a commentary on today’s social and political affairs. 


  • I’m an artist and designer from Manchester, England. My practice is research-led, primarily exploring our cultural artefacts, often resulting in the creation of visual ephemera. These books, zines, bulletins, prints, banners, films, talks, and workshops concern themselves with who we are and what we’re about.
