Perrotts Folly to become work of art.

Posted March 2nd, 2008 by Birmingham Conservation Trust with No Comments

The Ikon is hosting German artist Jürgen Partenheimer from 2 April – 18 May who will use Perrotts Folly as part of his work. The gallery tell us:

Partenheimer’s work is rooted in abstraction across many forms, expressing connections between art, poetry, music and literature, and importantly their place in everyday life. His is a philosophical investigation, work being an intellectual exposition of emotion, which in turn is considered an expression of life. In drawings and paintings of visual fragility, shapes, lines, colour and systems of repeated motifs, establish a poetic sensibility alluding to conditions of daily existence, challenging our usual interpretations of that which surrounds us.
