A newly-commissioned contemporary intervention by Barnaby Barford will respond to the Laing Art Gallery's permanent collection. It explores a contemporary morality tale relating to themes in the collection, through a series of eight sculptures that touch on our insatiable appetite for celebrity culture and living beyond our means. Producing six out of the seven sculptures, Barford will leave the completion of the seventh for the Laing’s visitors to contribute their own ideas of how the story should end. These ideas will be displayed in the Gallery where one will be personally chosen by Barford to make into a sculpture, forming the final piece of the story.
