As Liverpool Biennial hosts a troupe of international artists who have flown in from across the world and spent large sums on their work, what of those who operate by less bombastic means?
This exhibition seeks to create dialectics between shared, differing and contradictory conceptions of the local and the heroic. Amongst other things… aspects of size, scale, proximity, periphery, migration, media, morality, adversity, action, identity, intimacy, invention and determination… will be enacted and explored to various degrees by the work on show.
There will be a series of events taking place at View Two in conjunction with the exhibition.
All artists taking part are based in Merseyside.
