‘The Wrong Place’ curated by Royal Standard at Site, Albert Dock, March 21 – April 15 2007
Its not really a wrong place but on Tuesday night, Albert Dock was certainly a freezing cold place!
It was warm enough inside Site though where the huge inflatable flowers from the last exhibition have been replaced by a pool table and to one side there’s Leo Fitzmaurice’s installation made from supermarket boxes.
There are 3 strands to this exhibition, Pocket, Bag and Suitcase:
Pocket – Anyone who classifies themselves as an ‘artist’ can submit a pocket-sized item providing it reflects how they live, work and connect with the city. There were about 20 objects for the opening but I think there’s room for 150 so please do take something along (if you are an artist)
Bag – is a series of four micro-exhibitions, each one curated by a different artist group and each one only lasting for one evening. The format is fluid but audiences should come prepared to think, to play and to get involved.
Suitcase – features work by international artists Judith Egger (Munich), Tomas Zizka (Prague), Johnny de Veras (London) and Leo Fitzmaurice (Liverpool). Curated around the theme of ‘The Wrong Place’, the work explores each artist’s reaction and relationship to the language and fabric of their particular city
