Title Author Genre – Winter Lights 2008 launches 28th October
Title Author Genre
By Michael Pinsky
Tuesday 28th October 2008, 7.30pm
Join the Biennial for a reception with refreshments at the Mount Vernon Hotel, Irvine Street, L7 and celebrate the launch of the latest works in the Winter Lights series.
Title Author Genre takes the form of three animated neon sculptures placed in the three Liverpool neighbourhoods of Garston, Kensington and Kirkdale.
Graffiti helps define our neighbourhoods and artist Michael Pinsky has worked closely with all three communities drawing inspiration from some of the graffiti tags that currently exist on streets and buildings. The process of transforming these marks into neon motifs and creating illuminated sculptures alters the way we think about them. Whilst some visitors only see abstract calligraphic shapes, others will recognise their origins or even have authored the tag they refer to.
Begin the trail and view the works as they are switched on in each neighbourhood:
6:30pm Rotunda, 115 Great Mersey Street, L5 2PX
7:30pm Mount Vernon Hotel, 1 Irvine Street, L7 8SY
Details of Title Author Genre in Garston are yet to be announced!
Title, Author, Genre is part of the Winter Lights series, a Liverpool Biennial project developed in collaboration with Rotunda, Garston Cultural Village and Metal
