Perry Roberts

the seasons

7 January — 30 March 2019

Windows on 1 & 2, Selfridges, The Bullring Upper Mall East, Park Street, Birmingham B5 4BP

Belgium-based British artist Perry Roberts works in a variety of media including painting, furniture and wall drawings. ‘the seasons’ is a new text-based installation, reflecting on our experience of the seasons: fragmented and mixed up, it not only suggests the effects of climate change but raises questions concerning the nature of fashion. Roberts first exhibited at Ikon in 2006 with Transition, where Birmingham’s brutalist buildings were the focus of his aesthetic enquiry.

This latest commission is part of Selfridges’ 2019 campaign, State of the Arts which explores the power of art in unexpected places.  Discover Selfridges in-store art trail at their Bullring store, including works by critically acclaimed artists who have previously exhibited at Ikon, including Richard Wilson and Gillian Wearing.
