A Place Lived


'a place lived' by artist Maddi Nicholson is a series of playful cast iron enamelled sculptures that invite us to reflect on those who shaped Spinningfields in the 1800s. The sculptures bring to life the stories of people who occupied the area when it was packed with terraced housing, providing homes for workers in the industries operating close by at the time. It's often said of Spinningfields that there was 'nothing there' before the now thriving financial district was built, but this is far from the truth.
