Review: Liverpool Biennial 2016: Arseny Zhilyaev, Last Planet Parade

This was a home once, and it still feels like that takes precedent over its current status as a gallery. That’s no bad thing, not at all. Arseny Zhilyaev has responded to the architecture of the space – in both rooms – as delicately as you would in your own living room.
