Nicola Hicks; Dump Circus
82 Kingsland Road, London E2 8DP
Private view Monday 11 October, 5-8pm. Email [email protected] to RSVP.
Flowers Gallery is pleased to present Nicola Hicks’ Dump Circus. For the past four decades, British artist Nicola Hicks’ practice has addressed the universal, and often darker aspects of humanity, critiquing our social systems through the use of contemporary allegory. Dump Circus is a large-scale installation that upturns the anthropocentric perspective of the uncomfortable circus act, imagining an urban wasteland where the natural world has been savaged and suffocated by refuse and greed, and a cast of performers has bested their ringmaster.
