'Untitled States'

James Webb at MAC (Midlands Art Centre), Birmingham

James Webb constructs situations that court the imagination. In this, his first substantial exhibition in the UK, Webb introduces the viewer to a collection of works which serve to both reassure and unsettle. Here, in the relative safety of the arts centre, the artist makes a series of interventions to trigger a sense of something happening, something undeterminable, provocative and ultimately disquieting. With a distinctive and subtle application of sound, image and installation, Webb creates an environment in which powerful sensory experiences can occur and the casual encounter can leave a lasting impression.

18 September - 14 November
