M6 is a new commission by Mike Nelson, one of the most significant artists working in the UK today. M6 is Nelson’s first major exhibition in his home region and continues his singular investigation of political histories through the raw materials of our world.
Within the old industrial heart of Birmingham, discarded, utilitarian objects have been collected into a dark monument of an ignored parallel world. M6 acts as a tribute to the highways and their concrete islands, memorialising their past production and the shifting economies of spent resources.
