Preston Market Mystery Project

by John Newling

Preston Market Mystery Project Synopsis

The Preston Market Mystery Project began in 2006 and was developed through a series of site visits to the city during which the artist became intrigued with Preston's historic covered markets. The artist grew interested in the activity of transaction and exchange, which defines the markets; both the transaction of goods and the social exchange between the people who work and shop in the space. The project was developed to celebrate this exchange and to raise questions about the importance of the 'unknown' within a city, how mystery contributes to a sense of place and what this means in the context of regeneration. The Preston Market Mystery Project consisted of three separate but interrelated events: The Insurance Stall, Voicing Mysteries and The Knowledge Meal.
