Gone in 90 seconds

Illustrators and designers are marking the launch of new Manchester creative space Ply with a series of videos about pizza.

The rather odd project has seen seven creatives each make a 90-second pizza based movie.

These are being screened around the venue ahead of its opening next month, using screens positioned in the arch windows of Ply’s ground-floor exhibition space.

The show, entitled #PLYin90seconds, features work from Will Broome, Kyle MF Williams, Kayla Mattes, Andrew Salomone, Layla Sailor, Scott Weiner and April’s Animals.

The idea for the brief is derived from Ply’s pizza – which it says will take 90 seconds to bake. The content in the show all sticks doggedly to the brief, with London-based illustrator Will Broome creating these cute Pizza Eating Monster characters:

Artist Kayla Mattes, meanwhile, has created her 90 second film by editing her Cheesy Rituals installation ‘based on our cultural infatuation with pizza’, says Ply.

Each artist featured in the show will be given their own solo exhibition at Ply later this year, according to the venue.

The website and branding for Ply was created by Instruct Studio.

#PLYin90seconds runs until 17August at Ply, 26 Lever Street, Manchester M1 1DW
