The Manchester Hermit is nearly in!

The Manchester Hermit will move into the tower on Saturday the 27th.

Artist Ansuman Biswas will be living in the Museum’s Gothic tower for forty days and forty nights.

Artist Ansuman Biswas will ask you, the public, to reassess the value of the Museum’s hidden collections, casting light on a different object from the stores for each day of his residency.

Through his Blog, he hopes to engage you in debate about why museums collect and preserve objects, whilst  species and cultures become forgotten and extinct.

He will also question the relationship of human beings to the natural world, hinting at the inevitable extinction of the human race itself.
