Reliably informed

Running until Friday 30th March, The NewBridge Project invite you to take part in GIANTS, a project with artist Chad McCail.

GIANTS offers up the chance to look at the sources of money and power, the creative and destructive aspects of illusion and fantasy, what is necessary to love, what we can do without, and how we organise ourselves. Sitting somewhere between a child’s toy and an architectural model, Giants’ large layout presents a world in which the collective power of ordinary people is able to overturn monsters, and with that we’re able to explore how things might be done differently in the future.

With figures scaled by their wealth, the giants represent the rich and powerful, but the small figures will be fighting back, combining into giant human forms made of small people all ready to challenge the giants.

Artist Chad McCail will work with people from across Gateshead to build this huge three-dimensional layout to produce a piece of work that communicates issues that are important to everyone.

Take a look at the Giants blog page for more information.

Giants is at The NewBridge Project, Gateshead until Friday 30th March.
