From Saturday 21 September – Friday 21 October, Bonington Gallery plays host to over 50 artists and designers whose work demonstrates a diverse array of comic and narrative art. Mould Map 6 takes the form of an exhibition / walk-through magazine and will include talks, film screenings, performances and open workshops.

Competition brief:

If you had your own armour, what would it be like?

What does it look like, what it is made from, what does it protect you from, and what world do you wear it for? Is it decorative? Is it utilitarian? Is it symbolic? What does it say about you and your world?

To create your armour you can use any materials of your choosing, it can be two or three dimensional, the choice is yours.

Everyone needs armour sometimes, and we want to give prizes for the most exciting, imaginative armour out there.

Joseph P Kelly, Jakob Free

A limited edition copy of Mould Map 5, Black Box; and either a copy of Mould Map 4 or Jaakko Pallasvuo’s Pure Shores.
