In this fascinating exhibition at Manchester Central Library, artist Richard Bartle explores in minute detail the customs and icons of major world religions and belief systems.

Manifested in a series of 12 scale modelled garden sheds, the work reduces the usually grand architecture of churches and temples into more private spaces of worship. Viewers are invited to make their own minds up about the question of what it is to have faith, and the differences and similarities between differing belief systems.

Watch a video showcasing Richards brilliant work and what inspired him to create it.

Monday to Thursday 9am – 8pm; Fri & Sat 9am – 5pm (excluding Bank Holidays).
