The Manual Mills

In September 2017 I put on the participatory event: the Manual Mills at the ‘automatic mills’ in Pardubice, Czech Republic. This concluded a two week residency with Offcity – a grassroots arts organisation who are the custodians of a former automatic flour mill.

The Manual Mills playfully re-imagines the building as a functioning factory once again. At the door, visitors are invited to put on an apron and become a ‘worker’. The installation spans four floors, and each new floor reveals another stage in the re-imagined factory’s production line.
