Units Squared at Periscope

The next, and by all accounts final, show at the Periscope artists project space is Emma Bowen’s Units Squared.


From the forthcoming events page:

Units squared is a site specific installation by artist Emma Bowen, a response to the home of the periscope project space that is the Lee Bank Business Centre, and the culmination of her residency here.

The architecture and nature of the space and the activity within the building provides the context for this object based installation that reflects and comments on both the working of the environment and those that use it. Multiplicity and production being a common thread.

By using materials common to those found within the units of the Business Centre, Emma will continue her investigation into material as object, repetition, and the idea of the familiar as an access point into discussion and exchange.

There’s also a nice long article in the Post about Bowen and the Periscope project which is part of the Birmingham Artists setup. Birmingham Artists are losing their council funding this month and will be closing as the area they’re in undergoes major redevelopment (with the associated higher rents) so this is a quite poignant show.

The private view is Thursday 13th December 6-8.30pm and it then runs for the next two days, 14th and 15th December 12-5pm. Location details here.
