Click to enlargeMARK ESSEN : BUILD A WALL
Dec 8 - 22, 2018
Mark Essen is working with homeless and refugee communities in Birmingham in his studio, Modern Clay, learning how to make bricks. The bricks will then be used to build a wall in Eastside Projects with a local social enterprise building company.

3-PHASE. MARK ESSEN : BUILD A WALL
Dec 8, 2018 - Feb 23, 2019 FINAL WEEK
Mark Essen is responding with different communities and people he encounters at his studio, Modern Clay, to create a barrier that talks about lives, invisible walls constructed by governments, maintained by factions of society and the media, prohibiting them from being part of wider society. Mark is learning how to make bricks which he hopes will go on to become small scale brick factory which could be run as a social enterprise building company. These bricks will then be used to build a wall in Eastside Projects. Research for the project was supported by New Art Gallery Walsall’s ‘The Building as Material’ artist’s residency earlier in 2018. On 22 September ESP members took part in a Brick Making Workshop with Mark in Modern Clay.

FREYA DOOLEY : SOMEWHERE IN THE CROWD THERE'S YOU
Mar 2 - Apr 27, 2019
Private view Fri Mar 1 6pm - 8pm
We are working with Freya as she develops a multi-channel sound installation, incorporating moving image, activated with live performance which will oscillate in and out of control of broken narratives, individual and grouped voices: the solo and the chorus.
