The skull of the Slasher’s Monkey, a relic of Tipton Vicky Roden

In ‘The Sandwell Honours’, artist @vicky.roden explores the notion of civic and community identity through objects. Manufactured in the style of religious relics and crown jewels, the treasures in The Sandwell Honours seek to reflect the areas by both celebrating each individual town and working as a unified collection. Each item has its own story, and all involve sapphires to mark the 45th anniversary of the formation of Sandwell. Over the course of Blast!, the audience will be able to visit, handle and make their own relics.

Vicky Roden is a multi-disciplinary artist working primarily in Live Art. Much of her work seeks to draw the audience into an uncanny and slightly sinister world, utilising performance, soft sculpture, embroidery, sound, moving image and automata in order to engage the audience and make them complicit rather than passive viewers. .
