Congregation (Creating Dangerously Remix) BOTHY launch


Grand Union

Proposed Bothy design which will be installed at the Minerva Garden

Grand Union Gallery and British-Barbadian artist Alberta Whittle are collaboratively embarking on a long-term visual art project to aid in the much-needed healing of our Birmingham community. Using public sculpture, film, workshops, and community gardening with women’s groups, we seek to address issues surrounding use and ownership of land, and use congregation to consider notions of freedom and long-term healing.

We will be launching a large outdoor sculpture – a ‘bothy’- for people to use as a place for shelter and rest in the Minerva Apothecary Garden. Working with Midlands-based women’s organisations, we have grown The Minerva Apothecary Garden adjacent to our gallery space, full of healing herbs and plants.
