This Mortal Coil

Where: Vivid Projects, 16 Minerva Works, 158 Fazeley Street, Digbeth, B5 5RS
This month, Vivid Projects present This Mortal Coil – a programme of exhibitions, talks and live events exploring the darker side of the relationship between art, death, and the body.
Events include the groundbreaking X-Ray Audio, an exhibition of illicit Soviet-era records cut onto x-ray plates lifted from hospitals: on Friday 13 November, Stephen Coates will tell the story of the records and the bootleggers who made them. A live music performance will be recorded to demonstrate the process.
Expect a life drawing evening with a difference on Friday 27 November… Art Macabre, London’s purveyors of ‘death drawing’, inject a lethal dose of theatricality, curiosity and playfulness into the art of drawing from life. Advance tickets are available online here.
