A dreamlike film animates the text, “I want to go back to Mexico with my Mum and family from England to see my best friend, cousin and Mexican family again” by Sally Sanchez (aged 13 from Hull).
What I want
An exhibition of artworks created by people (aged 25 & under) from across the Wigan borough that includes text banners and a filmed performance by WigLe Dance, produced by Nicole Allered. This was part of our Text Art competition to creatively respond to the question, "What is it that you want more than anything else?" posed by acclaimed British artist and previous Turner Prize nominee, Mark Titchner.
Our competition winner, Cameron Mennell, aged 12 from Newbridge Learning Community is very proud to have his artwork, "I want to make the homeless happy" on display at Wigan STEAM.
