Grand Union presents Hiker Meat by artist Jamie Shovlin

Grand Union presents an exhibition by London based artist Jamie Shovlin. His latest project Hiker Meat examines the degree to which a film director (or artist) has control over their works’ intended message, meaning and historical legacy, exploring the inherent tension within processes of collaboration and adaptation in any creative endeavour.
The project is a partial adaptation of an earlier work by Shovlin, Lustfaust: A Folk Anthology 1976-81 (2003-6), an archive of material created by the fans and musicians of a fictional German noise band. Contained within this archive is a narrative sketch for an exploitation film entitled Hiker Meat, for which Lustfaust composed the soundtrack. Using these found notes as a starting point Shovlin is producing a large body of work which acts as a homage to, and deconstruction of, exploitation horror films of the 1970s and 80s.

Eastside Projects presents: Local Myths by artist Jennifer Tee

Local Myths is the first UK exhibition of work by Jennifer Tee. Specially commissioned, Tee will construct a sculptural setting with allusions to a number of ideologically transformative inner structures, sanctums and theosophical spaces – ostensibly visible but not directly tangible. Tee will be transforming the gallery space to accommodate works that lie, stand and hang, reconsidering the materials, walls and floor of the building.

Eastside Projects are also hosting Gods White Noise with artist Christian Jendreiko on Saturday 23rd October 12 – 7pm

86 Heath Mill Lane, Digbeth, Birmingham, B9 4AR
Thursday 12 – 6.30pm, Friday to Sunday 12 – 5pm

Ikon Eastside presents : AVPD

Ikon Eastside are hosting an exhibition by Danish duo AVPD. Hitchcock Hallway makes reference to director Alfred Hitchcock, whose use of architectural motifs in his films typically enhanced the psychological intensity of the narrative. The gallery entrance has been replaced by a door that you’re invited to enter. However, all is not what it seems as your journey through the exhibition will challenge your spatial and perceptual awareness and you will begin to feel increasingly claustrophobic. AVPD have also produced a number of off-site projects around Birmingham: Conceal at Ikon’s Brindleyplace gallery, and Level and Rotoobjects which take place throughout the city.

Since starting forty years ago as a small kiosk in Birmingham’s Bullring, Ikon has developed a reputation for innovation, internationalism and excellence. Ikon have been presenting an ambitious programme of exhibitions, artists’ residencies, talks and events in Digbeth, since November 2005.

Project Pigeon presents: Philopersiteron Feipan

The folks from Project Pigeon, Alexandra Lockett and Ian England, are going to be coordinating a flyover the festival site on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.  Based in the Rea Gardens on Floodgate Street, Project Pigeon explores how art, sport, education and curating can co-exist and what sporting sub-cultures can tell us about wider society and its systems, values, policies and ideologies.  Each pigeon will be wearing a different Philopersiteron Feipan whistle (or pigeon whistle) on their tail, which will create an amazing harmonic droning noise from across the pentatonic scale.  Think Red Arrows, but better, and a whole lot noisier.
The Rea Garden, 1-8 Floodgate Street, Digbeth, Birmingham, B5
Saturday 15.30 – 16.00, Sunday 13.30 – 14.00
