Elle Brotherhood: Manmade vs. Nature Made

  • 13 November 2015 — 10 January 2016 *on now

Elle Brotherhood’s photography, shown in the Granada Foundation Gallery on floor 1, is shot on traditional 35mm film or with a digital camera.

Imaginative and experimental, using prop and set design, Elle creates fantastical scenes comprised of the people, nature and objects she encounters. Elle studied photography at MMU’s Manchester School of Art and is based at the PLANT lab studio in Hotspur Press.



Brian Taylor: Movie Posters

  • 13 November 2015 — 10 January 2016 *on now

Brian Taylor’s series of hyper-realistic and reimagined posters for classic action, horror and sci-fi movie titles are created through a painstaking process of gathering existing film stills and design imagery from the period of each film’s release.

HOME Projects displays Brian’s entire series to date, including Alien, Aliens, Blade Runner, Predator, RoboCop, The Thing, Total Recall, Mad Max 2, An American Werewolf in London and Terminator 2, with further new additions to be announced.




  • 14 November 2015 — 3 January 2016 *on now

This major new group exhibition takes Todd Haynes’ influential understated masterpiece Safe (1995) as a starting point for a series of new commissions in moving image, sculpture, print, writing and performance from Claire Makhlouf Carter, Chris Paul Daniels, Yoshua Okon, 2014 Turner Prize nominee James Richards and Camilla Wills alongside existing work by Michael Dean, Sunil Gupta, Laura Morrison and Jala Wahid.

Haynes’ film stars Julianne Moore as Carol White, a 1980s Californian housewife who becomes increasingly allergic to everyday domestic products and routine activities, eventually moving to an enclosed community in New Mexico. It can be read as a reflection on environmental issues, sexual politics, the AIDS epidemic and suburban disillusionment. White appears trapped, either incapable or unwilling to reconcile the psychological and the physical.

Safe is one of a series of exhibitions coming up at HOME that takes a classic or influential film as inspiration. Alongside the exhibition, we will be publishing a new book, Transactions of Desire: Are you allergic to the 21st century? featuring responses by artists and writers to the languages of self-help and the film Safe.



AL and AL: Incidents of Travel in the Multiverse

  • 6 February — 10 April 2016

Incidents of Travel in the Multiverse, a major new solo exhibition of film, drawing, installation and a live concert hall performance, conceived from AL and AL epic sci-fi odyssey.

Incidents of Travel… is split into three journeys the artists have made with groundbreaking scientists.

The first journey, Icarus at the Edge of Time, is a multimedia spectacle that brings Einstein’s theory of general relativity to visceral life – and takes you to the edge of a black hole. Based on the children’s novella by America’s most famous physicist, Brian Greene, with a new score from renowned composer Philip Glass, plus visuals by AL and AL, the North West premiere of Icarus at the Edge of Time will be performed by the BBC Philharmonic on Sat 7 Feb at the Royal Northern College of Music.

The second journey, The Creator, sees AL and AL’s 2002 film premiere installed in our gallery. It imagines the computer pioneer Alan Turing, the father of artificial intelligence, visited on his deathbed by ‘thinking machines’ that have travelled back in time to meet him.

The third journey, also in the gallery, has been made in collaboration with Dr. Bart Hoogenboom, the nanobiophysicist who created the world’s first ‘real’ images of DNA. It tells the story of a space mission across the universe and a quest to discover a ‘cure’ for death.
