This catalogue accompanied Perry Roberts’ 2007 exhibition Transition.
It consisted entirely of new work, commissioned by Ikon, made in response to the architecture in Birmingham. Marking a significant development in his practice, until now involving mostly painting, wall drawing and interior design, Roberts presented a series of videos that dwell on the themes that informed his previous work.
Throughout the UK, architecture surviving from the 1960s and 70s has an ambivalent status – frequently despised and often with its future in question – poised somewhere between a state of decline and regeneration. Such buildings are the focus of Roberts’ aesthetic enquiry, raising questions concerning our experience of the built environment, reflecting and shaping the nature of everyday life.
