Nicola Hicks featured in The Brink
Two works by Nicola Hicks will be featured in The Brink, a three-day expansive exhibition featuring 16 artists and 5 filmmakers and animators, built on sculptures, installations, paintings, performances, and a special screening programme.
The Brink explores the interconnectedness between individuals and the spaces they inhabit and belong to using a stripped-back site as a way to explore the idea of place and conversely, non-place. Liminal sites like this often create a sense of disorientation and alienation, which is used as a point of departure to explore contradictory ways in which we experience space and shape it by our personal and collective memories, culture, and myths.
Ugly Duck is a London-based arts organisation that supports under-represented voices and emerging artists. Established in August 2012, their programme enables makers, community groups, professionals and the public to come together around unique cultural experiences and curated events. They have converted a beautiful empty Victorian warehouse in SE1 into a busy creative space which became, and still is, the home to countless rising artists.
