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.

Sculptures by Adrian Jeans

Date: 20th February – 4th March, 2018 Venue: 5 Bold Place, Liverpool, L1 9DN

Viewing: 08:00 – 23:00 daily, from street.

Using a head cast in mould inducing materials and seemingly rude grafitti, Adrian Jeans explores the on-going conundrum of whether a portrait is a replica of a person and a reflection of their character or a physical object with an existence and presence all of its own?

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.

A Nice Head

Date: 2013
Property: Romer Road, Liverpool, L6 6DJ
Artist: Adrian Jeans
Landlord: Private Home

A Nice Head is a portrait of the artist’s neighbour. Using the neighbour’s  often surprisingly friendly greeting “alright dickhead!” and newspaper  protocol, Adrian riffs upon the idea of portraits as both a portrayal of a person’s character (he’s a ‘dick’ head) and an inanimate art object (that’s a ‘nice’ sculpture of a head).
