Mike Nelson: Lionheart exhibition
  • Gallery Square
    Walsall
    WS2 8LG
  • Monday 14th May, 10:00am - Until Sunday 3rd June, 5:00pm
Mike Nelson is known for his installations, which often take the form of extended labyrinths; immersive environments that involve the viewer.

Lionheart, 1997 consists of junk materials painstakingly collected from specific locations by the artist and assembled to create a fictional drifter's camp, complete with skins, traps, darts, trophies and beer cans.

The work has been re-constructed by Nelson especially for this exhibition, providing a rate opportunity to see an early work by the British artist, whose installations usually only exist for the time period of the exhibition they were made for.
