From May to September 2019, Home of Metal will present a series of exhibitions in and around Birmingham, to celebrate the legacy of the band Black Sabbath.
As part of the series, Eastside Projects – which is based in the Digbeth area of Birmingham – will be presenting Monster Chetwynd: Hell Mouth 3.
Monster Chetwynd is a British artist, known for reworking iconic moments from cultural history in elaborate, compulsive and evocative performances. Chetwynd’s practice intertwines performance, sculpture, painting, installation and video. Her work incorporates elements of folk plays, street spectacles, and popular culture; from Heavy Metal music and Star Wars to Berthold Brecht’s Three Penny Opera, and surrealist cinema.
Monster Chetwynd’s Hell Mouth 3 channels the decline of Western Civilisation and legacies of Heavy Metal, through a 16th Century engraving of a human devouring monster.
Chetwynd’s ‘monster’ will hold the future of Metal, Birmingham and humanity in it’s mouth, as bands play for their lives within the maelstrom of history and the failure of society to support and empower the future workers of the hell mouth of industrial Britain.
Other exhibitions in the series will include Black Sabbath – 50 Years, at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery and All This Mayhem at MAC (Midlands Art Centre).
When: 18th May – 27th July 2019, open Wednesday -Saturday, 12pm – 5pm
Where: Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham B9 4AR
