Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

The Sickly Trickle

From Thursday 17th to Saturday 19th TROVE present The Sickly Trickle, a solo exhibition of works from Bristol based artist Zoe Williams at the site of the Old Science Museum, 144 Newhall Street.

‘Building an internalised and often fragmented dialogue between objects and materials, Williams fetishizes her dismembered installations, paintings and sculptures, whilst toying with and engineering a delicate balance between the sacred and the profane. Using a wide range of references from George Bataille’s transgressive texts to Art Deco furniture and Fairy Tale imagery; Williams juxtaposes a mixture of materials and techniques traditionally associated with the High Arts and Crafts, including porcelain, gold leaf and Inlay with modern materials, such as silicone rubber and Styrofoam.’

In the space visitors are invited to explore a space reminiscent of fairy tales where black waxen forms solidify between the floor tiles and traces of gold leaf flecks the walls.

The private view takes place on Thursday from 6-9pm. The show will then be open Friday and Saturday 4-8pm.
