From Pet Shops to Porn
2012
Description
We were asked by the guys at OWT Creative to submit a piece of work for the opening exhibition they were curating at new Manchester gallery VAULT. The theme of "From Pet Shops To Porn" was to highlight the changing face of Tib Street, a once bustling street in Manchester's Northern Quarter. Our take on theme was to produce a set of "Tart Cards" (you know the ones you find in telephone boxes in London) with pet themed slogans. Perfect! The gallery space itself is in a basement and has tiled walls which added to the seediness once they were framed and hung.

Our take on the theme was to produce a set of "Tart Cards" (you know the ones you find in telephone boxes in London) with pet themed slogans. Perfect! The gallery space itself is in a dark basement and has tiled walls which added to the seediness once they were framed and hung. The phone number belongs to the bar upstairs above the gallery space. Hopefully no one rang them up asking for a big hairy growler.
