Prints by Dawn Parry-Cunliffe.

Parry-Cunliffe wants to re-balance our emotional and physical connections with the animals we farm for consumption by focusing on a shared capacity to feel emotions, highlighting the parody we perform by adoring the thought of the animals we breed to eat while simultaneously causing them an inhuman amount of grief.

Re-frame:Treasuring What Is Left Behind.
Angelo Madonna
Dates: 4 – 31 March, 2019
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN
Times: 24/7

Angelo Madonna continues his fascination with found and discarded objects with this re-presentation and re-animation of an abandoned wardrobe. The subtly subversive furniture-sculpture hybrids provide a philosophical assessment of the wardrobe’s original function as a container of secrecy and surprise while also extending its power of suggestion along Duchampian lines.

An installation by Georgia Rusch.

Inspired by Water Babies – a Victorian allegory for the existence of the soul despite the lack of scientific evidence – Georgia Rusch has made her own Water Babies as an updated allegory of how consumption of throw-away commodities has polluted the vast, enigmatic oceans that surround us.

Back From The Dead

Dates: 1 August – 31 October, 2018
Location: 57-61 Regent Road, Liverpool, L5 9SY
(on corner with Blackstone Street – don’t rely on satnav!)
Times: 07:00 – 23:00 daily

Art In Windows opens its new location in the historic, north-Liverpool docks area with a show by sculptor Adrian Jeans.

In Back From The Dead, Jeans displays portraits cast in agar jelly (more commonly used to grow bacteria in petri dishes) to explore portraiture’s search for living likeness. Unlike with traditional sculpture materials, the agar heads will be colonised, and then biologically re-animated, by bacteria floating in the air – a process that will physically alter the portraits and bring the normal ambitions of portraiture to a logical, but unexpected, conclusion
