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
