For August Digbeth First Friday, Recent Activity present a special iteration of Nomadic Vitrine with artist James Parkinson. James uses processes of material translation to create works that explore notions of space, object, and body. Treating these entities as malleable forms, he aims to amplify the points at which they converge, become entangled or complicate each other. Recent projects include Ablat at Two Queens Project Space, Thick Support at STCFTHOTS, Slower Volumes at Cactus Gallery and The Spirit of the Staircase at The Sunday Painter.
