Launch 6-8 pm, September 16, 2011 "CHILD" is a new major three screen video commission and film-set installation in the main gallery of Eastside Projects, Birmingham UK. The work seeks to create an atmosphere of melodrama, strangeness and oddness informed by the artist's background in theatre and performance art. The exhibition draws upon the existing context of the gallery and its surroundings combining with the cinematic references. "CHILD" is about a small troubled family coping with the long absence and return of the father. Pope.L continues to construct surprising and unique work around the dispersion and coalescing of matter, values and concepts of what it means to be alive
