Humber Street Gallery is delighted to present A Tittle-Tattle-Tell-a-Tale Heart, Athena Papadopoulos’ first major institutional presentation in the UK. Using her recent two-part novel, of the same title as a point of departure the artist will create a narrative that combines the use of free-standing sculpture, sound installation, costume and performance.
The exhibition is loosely based on her recent novel of the same title and is constructed around a selection of chapters reinterpreted into 2&3-D artworks. The novel mimics that of a detective story, inspired by films such as Sunset Boulevard and follows the narrative of the film’s protagonist “Bunny” to uncover what may have led to her downfall.
Humber Street Gallery is a contemporary art space nestled in the heart of the city’s Fruit Market cultural quarter. Housed in a former fruit warehouse, the gallery will showcase the best in contemporary visual arts from the shocking to the sublime. The gallery seeks to generate debate, push boundaries, encourage new ways of thinking and inspire with a packed programme designed to appeal to those both familiar and not so familiar with the arts.
