Ever wondered what the likes of Batman and Wonderwoman do when they get home from a hard day’s work saving the world: whether they kick off their shoes – or masks – and slump on the sofa like the rest of us? Opening tomorrow, Gregoire Guillemin’s new exhibition asks just that, as he presents his imaginings of the lives of off-duty superheroes. The exhibition marks a much-anticipated return to Twenty Twenty Two for Guillemin, having proved popular at the venue’s The Print Shop exhibition last year, where all of his prints sold out. This time exploring real human attributes and weaknesses hidden behind the masks – think swearing, shaving and junk food – this will be the first showing of the exhibition of the UK, as he reimagines these so-called ‘half gods amongst men’ as being just like the rest of us.

Thu 6 Mar – Sat 22 Mar, Twenty Twenty Two, Dale Street, M1 1EZ. Tel: 0161 237 9360. Tues – Thu: 4pm – 12am, Fri – Sat: 4pm – 3am, FREE, twentytwentytwo.co.uk
