Northern Art Carbooty Seller / Maker: Scarab Boutique 

Selling / Making: Scarab boutique is a beautiful project where they invite you the public to bring along old clothes which you would like to donate, take them off your hands but more over listen to your stories about the item - where you got it, what it meant to you - stitch the story into the item for the next owner of it to find! 

So if you have items that have particular memories of significance or with particular stories behind them then please please please bring them along on the day! 

A word from Scarab ‘We want to give old clothes a new life.We’re setting up a mobile boutique that will be selling second hand and upcycled clothes, but with a twist. Many of these clothes will be your old clothes, ones with sentimental value or stories attached. We believe their histories are interesting and important. We take donated items, listen to their stories and write them on the tags for the next owner to read.’

Northern Carbooty seller: Taneesha Ahmed performs… ‘Fruits of her Labour’ 

About the seller: Fruits of Her Labour, 2014

Taneesha Ahmed is an artist and curator based in Manchester. Currently investigating labour, precariousness, exploitation and globalisation, her artwork is often resolved as performances, moving image and participatory acts. 

The work that she will undertake at Carbooty, is direct reference to the twenty-eight Bengali migrant strawberry pickers who were shot repeatedly by their Greek employers after they demanded the six months of wage owed to them. Whilst highlighting the volatile working conditions and exploitation of migrant workers in recession hit Greece, it simultaneously focuses on the fragile market economy and the food trade within the European Union.

Selling: Part performance, part market stall; the art- work on sale is the chance to participate in a staged shooting of the artist and purchase the sweet (strawberry) fruits of her labour.

Price range: fruity goody / performance participation £3- £5
