An award winning artist known for her public artwork is bringing her new project ‘The Big Question Mark’ to Birmingham later this month.

Diana Bell is bringing the installation, which has appeared in Edinburgh, Bath and Liverpool, to Chamberlain Square in the city centre.

The Big Question Mark is a free artwork and intended for anyone to take part.

People are invited to write their answers to questions such as ‘Where do you come from? Where do you feel is home? Where do you belong? Where are your roots? on a small wooden house in their preferred language.

The houses are placed in a circle to be part of the installation and comments are then carried online.

“I like to make work that is fun and open for everyone, but has some deeper meaning,” said Ms Bell.

“People are looking for answers and we all appreciate something thoughtful among the mundane activities of our daily lives.”

Ms Bell has created interactive art with the public in numerous different situations including on a railway station in France; outside a library in Berlin; along a river; in a wood in Romania; in a nature reserve; in a shopping centre and in a hospital in Oxford, as well as being in the centre of many major cities.

Ms Bell will be in Chamberlain Square between 10am and 5pm on Saturday July 18 and Sunday July 19.
