When Castlefield Gallery approached the artist and influential teacher Pavel Büchler with an open brief for an artistic or curatorial project, he responded by proposing to reclaim the stripped-down identity of the gallery as, simply, ‘a place where art and the public encounter one another’. He presents a sparse selection of works chosen with a preference for an economy of means which they share with his own practice – paintings by Kris Fierens from Antwerp and Gregor Hylla from Berlin; small photographic and installation pieces by the Swiss artist Pamela Rosenkranz; and from Manchester, the improvised sculptures by Ian Rawlinson and Maeve Rendle’s asynchronic video recording of a pianist’s rehearsal.
