Teresa and Dominique Hodgson-Holt
Red was developed as part of ‘In The Shops Now!’ – a month-long residency, during which artists developed projects in three recently vacated shops, in a semi-open-air shopping centre. During the residency, each artist worked in a specific shop, instigating collective performances and developing installations, which were displayed for a further month.
During their residency, Teresa and Dominique Hodgson-Holt created an alternative shop, where customers took part in a unique performance by temporarily exchanging their clothes for red outfits and taking a walk through Preston city centre. The project cumulated in a Red flash mob, during which 30 people, dressed entirely in red, walked through the city’s streets, squares and shopping centres. Following their residency, Teresa and Dominique developed the project in Bury, Greater Manchester, where they took over a stall at The World Famous Bury Market.
