'Tunnel Vision,' Bunker Gallery, 16th February - 6th April 2019
Review by Matt Retallik
"If you’re familiar with Manchester, you’ll also be acquainted with its changing face. The city is a site of relentless construction, and as the old is raised to make way for the new it has become increasingly difficult to find space to make exhibitions. Tunnel Vision, the latest presentation at Bunker Gallery introduces ten paintings by Saddleworth-based artist Genevieve Slater, which seemingly capture the jeopardy of the space where they are presented. Bunker Gallery is as you might imagine from the name, a subterranean basement where its covert qualities and imperfections are more power to its charm. The gallery is below the PS Mirabel project space and studios, and is curated by CATFLAP collective, a group of graduates from Manchester School of Art who have carved a name for themselves on the Manchester art circuit."
"Bunker might be small but with exhibitions such as Tunnel Vision the intention is obviously mighty, and the quality high."
