“Ways To Escape” was a small mixed media exhibition at 2022NQ, a small gallery space in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The exhibition was only a week long (14th – 23rd March 2013) – I caught it on the last day and glad I did. Above are my favorite works from the show, I love the neon ladder falling from the ceiling and the medical drip had headphones attached – which put you straight into a hospital bedside intensive care scenario!
Stunning vintage Noris 8 synchromer 8mm home movie projector, manufactured by the German factory Plank KG, cir 1954.
Runs great for being nearly 60 years old. I have a few home movies which can be a bit random, but totally take you back in time. I am currently trying to source one from Manchester city centre, however any footage for cities is increasingly hard to get your hands on.
Close up of film feed and film speed light. The whole thing is made from a beautiful silver grey mottled cast steel with red detailing. I also have the original green hounds-tooth carry box which is in immaculate condition considering it’s age.
Above is some of the packaging for the film reels and the large bulbs used to project the film.
