Anachron-Gen - While You Wait

twenty+3 projects is pleased to present for the next exhibition While You Wait, by Sheffield based collaboration Anachron-Gen.

In While You Wait, Anachron-Gen have assembled objects, writing and digital recordings, as a series of responses to the city and its urban spaces. It reflects ways of experiencing a place - fragmented, uncertain, obscure and confusing. While You Wait draws together divergent ideas to become a place to navigate, inhabit and re-imagine the city again.

The group's decision to take Manchester as a starting-point for this work has grown from a recognition of different personal relationships to the city, time spent as a group in conversation, exploring and getting lost in its streets and neighbourhoods.

Anachron-Gen's work acknowledges the construction of place, paradoxically, as a conception borne of fragments of information, or discovered historical or representational reference points.

While You Wait also uses the gallery, a former living room, to challenge the notions of 'the exhibition'. As a number of objects or possessions presented in a front room, the work treads a fine line between consumption and production, attempting to create a space to work things out.

Anachron-Gen's inventive and quirky interactions with place and space have included site-specific interventions in both rural and urban environments including Muncaster Castle in Cumbria, billboards in Sheffield and the Sheffield Pavilion in Venice 2007.

twenty+3 projects is a contemporary art space, run by artist Heidi Schaefer, located in the converted front room of a terraced house in Manchester. It can be found at 23 Bury Avenue, Manchester, M16 0AT, UK.
