We’re happy to announce that Dan Carden, local Walton MP has kindly agreed to let Dead Pigeon Gallery take over his office space for a three month period. This will be DPG’s second group show and continues our developing theme of exhibiting art in unexpected places.
It’s a unique collaboration; housing art and politics together under one roof and offers many avenues for discussion, particularly the value of art and culture to a community. It also demonstrates a new and welcome attitude from our local MP and shows the community that new ideas are welcome and encouraged.

Louis Jeck Prestige
Louis Jeck-Prestidge makes sculpture using discarded materials. These objects often reference the home and are inscribed with psychological and emotional experiences. Abject, quirky and very human, these inanimate objects engage the viewer in a very direct confrontation with the materials and systems that govern our daily rituals and surroundings.
Photographer based in Liverpool. As well as commissioned work for a wide variety of clients, Mark’s personal work includes urban landscapes which in this work, he’s deconstructed to explore ideas about the changing architecture of Liverpool.
