International artist exhibits in Plymouth Market

A new installation by international artist Charlotte Moth is going on exhibition in Plymouth Market.

From Tuesday 19 to Saturday 23 March, (10:00am to 4:00pm), Paris-based Charlotte will present a new off-site installation in Plymouth’s 1950’s grade II listed market building.

Come and see the installation in Plymouth Market
Four slide projectors will be situated in a market stall and will project images that Charlotte has made of 1950’s and 60’s architecture that explore the spaces of religion, home and retail in three different European locations. The locations include the church of St. Bernadette de Banlay (Nevers, France by Claude Parent and Paul Virilio architects in 1966); the Apollo Pavilion (in Peterlee, UK, also from 1966 and designed by Victor Pasmore) and of course, Plymouth Market (designed by Paul Pearn and Ken Bingham and opened in1959).

In addition, a film produced by Charlotte will be screened at the KARST gallery in Stonehouse.
