      CONSTRUCTING THE SELF: DAVID BOWIE 10 JUNE – 11 JUNE 2016, 12-5 Constructing The Self is comprised of new art works, music and audience participation, led by the Black Hole Club group of Midlands artists in celebration of the creative life of David Bowie. Put on your red shoes and dance the blues as we explore Bowie’s world. Starman, iconoclast, Blackstar: David Bowie remains the ultimate self constructed pop icon. ‘The Mountain of Dead Selves’ is a six panel video work exploring the psychic states at play in the construction of Bowie’s 1976 album, Station to Station. The work explores Bowie as mystery school as much as art school.
