Not content with colonising Digbeth every summer the IKON is invading Erdington:
As part of Birmingham City Councilâ€™s Arts Champion Scheme, artist Jacques Nimki has designed a range of brightly coloured banners that line Erdingtonâ€™s High Street. The works feature wild ï¬‚ owers that grow in the area, as observed by the artist on a research trip. To mark the twinned relationship between Ikon and Erdington, Nimki has also created a large, vibrant banner showing similar imagery, located in front of the gallery building.
Nimki, you’ll remember, was responsible for creating a meadow in a Digbeth warehouse this summer.
The banners go up on Tuesday 25th.
