Matchbox City exhibition launch: Friday 4 July 17.00 – 19.00
Join us at the Brink for Matchbox City, a growing micro-city installation of miniature matchstick people and cardboard buildings. The sculptures were created by participants affected by homelessness during creative sessions with community artists Connecting Threads at the Whitechapel Centre, in partnership with Crisis Skylight Merseyside. Matchbox City became the backdrop for stop-motion animations exploring notions of home, community and our place within a city.
Matchbox City is part of the Liverpool Independents Biennial.
Also at The Brink, Space13’s L.I.F.T (Lost Is Found Theory) exhibition will explore artist Leon Jakeman’s recovery journey and feature work from participants in the Brink’s Community Arts Programme. Simon Yorke will exhibit portraits of people who sell the Big Issue.
