Sophie Von Hellermann â€“ On the Ground at Vilma Gold
On the Ground takes the form of contemporary iconostases based on the events leading up to the death of the cult figure Nico. In a series of part-fictional and part-factual scenes Nico isdepicted alongside Andy Warhol, members of the Factory scene and finally her son Ari. Hellermann's paintings are loosely based on an outline of the final period in Nico's life where she fled Manchester for Ibiza.
