Commissioned by SHIFT, Cheshire East Council with support from Macclesfield’s Barnaby Festival and Arts Council England, Matthew Rosier’s 108 Steps will be on display on the evenings of 26, 27 and 28 October.
The 108 Steps, a winding stairway between the Macclesfield station and the town centre, are a beloved local landmark for Maxonians. Earlier this year, FAULT LINES artist Matthew Rosier visited Macclesfield to capture the daily life of these iconic steps on film. The footage he captured — local runners, commuters, dog walkers and everyone in between — has been composed into a loop of memories, which will be projected onto the face of the steps (and the people using them). The work creates interplay between past and present, bringing to life the Steps’ historic connection to people and place.
