Pursuing the Narrative is a collaboration between two Manchester-based practitioners, writer and artist Jo Manby, and artist Gary James Williams. This exhibition explores the narrative of the written word, installation and the moving image, examining the blurred frontier between written and visual fictions.
Jo Manby is a freelance writer and artist who writes various types of fiction. She works in painting, sculpture and drawing and has extensive experience of gallery curating and project management.
Gary James Williams exhibits internationally, working in a broad interdisciplinary practice. Williams’ work enquires into the creative potentials of the narrative structure, the arena of storytelling and our relationship with the material and the ephemeral.
