Rie Nakajima and David Toop

Sculpture 7

Sunday 6 September 2015

Free, suggested donation £2
Ikon Gallery, Second Floor Galleries 

(Please note that this event was formally advertised as taking place at CBSO Centre, Birmingham)

Ikon, in collaboration with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, presents Sculpture 7, an ongoing project devised and curated by Rie Nakajima and David Toop. A consideration of events as sculpture, it questions notions of performance as entertainment, conventions of duration and negotiations of space, through an understanding that any event that defines itself from the environment and within time is a Sculpture.

Places are free but should be booked. Please book online or call Ikon on 0121 248 0708. Please note that online booking closes at 11am on Sunday 6 September.

For this event, five artists Rie Nakajima and David Toop, Howard SkemptonMark Sanders and Hannah Silva work within defined guidelines:

1. You can place your Sculpture in any part of the space except for those that are forbidden by external forces.
2. Please choose the duration of your Sculpture.
This can be approximate for your own purposes but please be specific when you tell us the duration.
3. If your Sculpture lasts for longer than the time you have chosen then you may find that the next Sculpture overlaps with yours. Please don’t be alarmed by this.
