Samara Scott – Eastside Projects


Wednesday to Saturday 12–5pm
86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AR

In the main space ‘Silks’, Samara Scott’s first solo – show in a public gallery, rips up and ruptures the floor to create an irrepressible, erotic topography of consumer products. Her exotically prosaic worlds of poured and pooled misused materials – household chemicals, soft drinks, toilet paper, scented waxes, noodles, eye shadow and toothpaste – cascade, smear and mould into an archipelago of voids cut into the gallery’s concrete floor.

In the second gallery Roger Coward re-visits his 1975 Artist Placement Group project, which focused on Small Heath, presenting the exhibition ‘YOU AND ME HERE WE ARE’, which includes the artist’s film ‘The Most Smallest Heath in the Spaghetti Junction’ and a selection of archive materials.

Eastside Projects is a free public gallery in Digbeth that is being imagined and organized by artists, in partnership with Birmingham City University.
