A Vivid Projects commission from artist Cathy Wade. Carousel will be a participatory interdisciplinary work using projections within a collective immersive environment that explores ownership, time, sound and image. The public will work with the artist to experience hand held projectors or carousels, with original slides and mementos, to create ever changing projected environments that van be immediately experienced. www.vividprojects.org.uk
The Pavilion will host a rolling programme of Creative Residencies. Artists, film makers, book makers and a range of other creatives will set up home in The Pavilion for a week, making new work and offering a variety of free activities for Library visitors.
Each week, visitors entering the space will be treated to a different experience, ranging from interactive pieces such as audience inspired theatre and film workshops to exhibitions of sci-fi sculptures made from junk and artefacts honouring lost mythical deities. The Library’s collections and literary resources inspired much of the programme, and each residency will encourage audiences to discover something new in the Library of Birmingham.
Part of the Discovery season.
