We were walking through Digbeth the other day, and I spotted a huge poster out the corner of my eye. Turned out it was advertising the first date of the ‘Bill Drummond World Tour’ – his 25 Paintings.
We popped inside – it was brilliant.
Drummond creates art through activities – what he calls ‘sculptures’.
Each of the 25 paintings created advertise or signify one of the activities.
Some of the activities include knitting…
They’re all beautifully random.
I particularly like the Soup Line – if your house sits on the Soup Line, Drummond will come and make a vat of soup for you.
Drummond has also been twinning towns – this one was hilarious:
The 25 paintings are changed are repainted everytime an activity finishes and a new one is started.
Each activity has a notice – there’s a huge wall of them on display – but Drummond has been through over 600 so far.
Whilst the exhibition may be small, it continually evolves from one week to the next – so you’ll see different things and over the next 11 years he’ll amass a huge amount of work.
