Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Wunderkammer

Wunderkammer, or ‘cabinet of curiosities’ is a traveling show of 16 small works by artists from Germany, the UK, Canada and the US that grows and changes as it goes. Incorporating sculpture, photography, painting, a new ‘smart phone-dependent art’ piece by Daniel Sailsbury and a live presentation of  ‘A Slide Show by… Andy Field‘ on the opening night, it is the 4th stop the show has made and the first time it has been exhibited in the UK. It is brought to you by Clarke Gallery and will be shown at TROVE from this Thursday until 30 December.

The criteria was that works had to fit within the confines of a hand-luggage size Wunderkammer but also reference story telling, dealt with the idea of the archive or were traces of or ephemera from an event or a larger piece. The text for the type-written labels was provided by each artist.

All work is for sale. Sales will make room for new work to be accommodated by artists from each place visited and help fund its ongoing journey.

The opening is on Thursday 8th December from 6-8.30pm with ‘A Slide Show by… Andy Field’ at 6.30pm.
