Site Platform offers an opportunity for artists to use the gallery space to develop new work in the gallery setting whilst also allowing audiences to engage with the process. The artists are each given up to two weeks in the gallery, during which the projects change and develop or incorporate events or performances. This gives visitors the opportunity to return at different stages of the project to view or participate.  Each artist’s residency will be accompanied by a new piece of writing commissioned by the gallery.

For his Platform Commission, Tom Woolner will develop a new performance work. Expanding on previous projects with his makeshift troupe The Archimboldo Players, he will bring the sculptural and performative sides of his practice together, orchestrating a hybrid event with a new cast of characters, performers, volunteers and musicians. By collaborating with others and stretching his practice in both scope and duration, he will use the project to publicly test where his work sits between sculpture, theatre, music and comedy.

An Evening with Archimboldo will take the form of an event at 7pm on Friday 25 February.
