Verses in Glutterridge – Cathy and Paul Newman

Paul Newman, Snow Man Circle, 2012.

Friday 14th December / Saturday 15th December

Minerva Works, Fazeley Street, Birmingham B5 5RS.

“A journey into a Poundshop in Tooting once provided the curious spectacle of the massed ranks of cheery tat disintegrating into discarded and dumped boxes the further into the back of the store you walked. There came a point where you could walk no further and you wondered what value or possibility this wreckage had for the curious consumer.
Verses in Glutterridge revaluates and skews the logic of the commercial display creating a journey from detritus to glittering seasonality. Objects are stuffed and hidden, paths are created and trodden, lights sparkle from afar and figures inhabit the space to their own logic and patterns. We welcome the traveller in to explore this environment.”

Paul Newman and Cathy Wade will be presenting an installation and performance for Warwick Bar’s Winterreise on the 14th and 15th December 2012. Performance times to be announced shortly.
