Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Wood, J and Harrison, P
Abstract: A group show of film, sculpture, photography and painting depicting trees by artists from Birmingham and the Midlands. The theme of the exhibition is inspired by a short story by JRR Tolkien; Leaf by Niggle. An allegory of the creative process and, to an extent, Tolkien’s own life, which follows the structure of Dante's Divine Comedy. Around 1939 the story of Leaf by Niggle came to JRR Tolkien in a dream and was first published in the Dublin Review in January 1945. It was reprinted in Tolkien's book Tree and Leaf which is available as a gallery copy in the exhibition.
