Black Smoke Rising is an extraordinarily powerful exhibition by sculptor Tim Shaw RA. The centrepiece ‘Casting a Dark Democracy’ is inspired by the image of a hooded man being tortured in Abu Ghraib, first seen 10 years ago. This image of inhumanity remains very potent, stirring primitive fears; the exhibition speaks of human conflict through the ages.
‘There is an attempt to understand the nature of who we are through a process of reduction, a stripping down of the human condition to its primordial bare bones. I am interested in aspects of humanity that do not change.’
Curated by Indra Khanna and produced in partnership with mac Birmingham and Aberystwyth Arts Centre
Part of the Arts Centre's Reflections of War Season.
