An exhibition by Lidia Lidia
Dates: 1 – 31 October, 2019
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN
Times: 24/7

Lidia Lidia uses her trademark pink imagery of feminine stereotypes to confront the misogynistic submission of females worldwide. The gentle prettiness of popular female identity is subverted by a life-sized Barbie doll, bruised and performing multiple domestic chores, and flowers inscribed with facts about violence against women – highlighting the ubiquity of this oppression.

An installation by Abel Shah
Dates: 1 – 31 August, 2019
Location: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN
Times: 24/7

Abel Shah is a collaboration between artists Alex Bell and Giulia Shah.

Using the body as an object of display, Abel Shah has created an installation titled Pain after Pane exploring ideas around the language of objects, structures of value and the notion of the spectacle.

“They stare in timeless wonderment through shop windows. Enraptured. Entranced. Enlightened.

Pain after pane after pane…. the glass fragments continue down the street…”

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.
