Framing FRAME_birmingham

Co-directing FRAME_birmingham revealed to me many problems that I never usually face when working digitally. On screens, that are sometimes no bigger than our palm, we’re able to wander through a seemingly infinite space and control and change everything we see at our leisure with only the click of a mouse or tap of a screen.

With the FRAME_birmingham rehange I didn’t have such control. There were no “handles” with which to resize pieces, nor could the size of the room be changed in a menu item.

This lack of control, whilst intimidating at times, forced me to take a creative approach to arrangement.

Since 18th February myself and Alex Billingham have been directing the rehang of FRAME_birmingham.


The project officially ended on 17th February, but will now continue for one more month, until 18th March at The Big Peg in Jewellery Quarter.

The project will be having a private view/party on Friday 1st March from 17:00-19:30 at Unit 743 (on the 7th floor) of the Big Peg. After that it’ll be available to view by appointment only – contact Jenny Duffin.

You can also still buy a print from Some of My Favourite Songs


FRAME_birmingham, the three-month long exhibition of artwork by national and international artists at venues across Birmingham, is now in its second month. Fade to Daft has been taken down from the Penfold Grange Suite of Hotel du Vin, but it can still be purchased online for £180. The next piece in that series, Plenty, can be seen in Birmingham Central Library, near the entrance to the lending library. The image is an image remix of the song Plenty by Rob Crow/Thingy.

If you’re looking for ways to spend your Christmas money you can purchase the work for £180 mounted and unframed or for £230 with a frame.
