DR.ME: Choice Cuts

On the Granada Foundation Gallery walls on floors 1 and 2, we present work by DR.ME (Ryan Doyle and Mark Edwards), taken from their recent year-long project 365 Days of Collage. Drawing upon advertising ephemera, travel supplements, ethnographic magazines and material sourced from thrift stores – much of it from Paramount Books in Shudehill – the repurposing of found images results in a collision of meaning and revised intent. The result is often humourous, always startling and frequently sinister, as jumbled limbs clash with vivid patterns, and landscapes are pierced by unlikely architecture.

Alongside a series of new works created especially for this exhibition, some of DR.ME’s original works have been digitally printed at a bigger scale, exaggerating the halftone inking, distressed edges and truncated assembly to create a magnified perspective of the letterbox originals.
