DaDaFest 2009 ends on Saturday 5 December so if you haven’t seen the exhibitions yet you need to be quick.
Upstairs at the Bluecoat there is Sally Booth.
Recipient of the Adam Reynolds Memorial bursary, Sally Booth was artist in residence at the Bluecoat earlier this year, supported by Shape and Tate Liverpool. She returns with a series of photographic light-boxes inspired by the changing light and shadows of the beautiful oval windows in her studio.
At Open Eye there is Kevin Connolly’s ‘The Rolling Exhibition’
Kevin Connolly, a photographer who has no legs and uses a skateboard for transportation, has photographed people’s reaction to him across 15 countries and 31 cities. He has captured what he calls the “universal stare”; the imperfect moment of that glance is intriguingly and imaginatively recorded in this collection.
The Rolling Exhibition reprises the exhibition of the same name that was showcased by DaDaFest 08, incorporating four new photographs that were taken during his stay in Liverpool last year.
‘Resistance‘ showcases a brand new installation from Liz Crow. It features a national touring, moving image installation exploring Aktion-T4, the Nazi, mass-murder programme that led to the death of a quarter of a million disable people.
Through the story of Elise, a woman who showed courage in the face of horror, we bear witness to one of the truly imperfect moments of the last century.
Challenging a neglected part of our history whilst raising critical questions for today, Resistance is a disturbing, sometimes chilling work of art.
