So, last year one of the many many many things I applied to was New Art West Midlands, and unlike a lot of the countless job and competition applications, this one actually came through!
So I spent my Valentines evening moseying about the show which featured just over 20 graduates from the five art schools situated in and around Birmingham. Whilst my work is in Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (conveniently situated right next to my old art school), there’s also work over at Grand Union at the moment and more to soon appear at The Barber Institute, Selly Oak.
It’s sort of like a combined degree show – and one which might help a few of us kick-start our careers! Here are a few images and a film of my work, which was two hours of 8mm film from 1948-1972 cut down to just one minute via digital editing. I took all of the split second cracks and imperfections out, sewed them together on Final Cut and tah dah! 35 years of film making in a minute.
