Unnatural Swell


Unnatural Swell

Dates: 15 December 2018 – 15 January 2019
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN
Times: 24/7

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

Adrian Jeans
Dates: 15 June – 31 July, 2018
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN
Times: 24/7

Jeans playfully explores life-sculpting’s practical conflict with expression by comically contrasting the dour head of a man who sat long hours for his portrait with the gesturing hand of the artist full of meaning. Accompanying this are 100 drawings that impressively chart the hand’s boundless expressivity.

The Female Suspension

 

Ver 0.28N  Ver 0.28N

Artist: Alison Little
Dates:  6th March – 6th April
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN
Times: 07:30 to 23:00 daily

The Female suspension is an installation which addresses a world of sexual violence. The lower bodies and limbs of numerous women who have been raped are suspended by chained, hooks penetrating their groins. Meat like, a waste product, violated then disposed of like an animal carcass meat still to be stripped from the bones.

Posters by Peter Appleton
Dates: 6th January – 6th February 2018
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN
Times: Dawn to 11pm daily (viewing from street)

Over 2000 years ago he developed a theory of political governance which started with aristocracy and inevitably progressed through stages to tyranny.

This exhibition of posters explores those stages and invites the viewer to decide where we are as a society along that journey between the two extremes.

Aristocracy – rule by a few families born to rule – familia supra omnia – family above all.

Timocracy – rule by the worthy and wealthy – pecuniate obedient omnia – money masters all things.

Oligarchy – rule by business and interests behind the scenes – regem comitem me comes regem – you make me a count I will make you a king.

Democracy – rule by the majority but at what point do the ‘rights’ of individuals impact on collective rights? An nesis mi fili quantilla prudential mundus regatur – do you know my son with how little wisdom the world is governed?

Tyranny – rule by a dictator – sic semper tyrannis – thus always to tyrants.
