Look11: Baltic Creative – Transition 2011

trans-100 LOOK2011-logo ‘Transition’ , Jordan St, Baltic Creative. 13 – 31 May 2011 (Part of Look11). Launch: Friday 13 May 18-21.00. Transition is a photographic collaboration which aims to explore the notion of change from a broad range of perspectives – from our subject matter itself to its means of dissemination.

Our eight members’ projects range from the highly personal to the experimental and socially engaged, and Transition also includes work that questions the very nature of photographic reality. We are being guided through this process by photographer AJ Wilksinson.

Taking place during Liverpool’s Look 2011 international photography festival in May, our exhibition will take place within the public realm.

Our images will be displayed inside and outside three large shipping containers placed on a former industrial site minutes from the city centre, turning the show itself into an eye-catching installation piece.

The 20ft by 8ft steel containers that we have chosen to use themselves embody the idea of passage or change, having been transported to Liverpool for the purpose of this festival. They are also likely to have travelled great distances with their mystery cargo over the preceding years.

As our work pasted onto their exterior is left at the mercy of the elements over the course of May it too is likely to change on a daily basis, fitting perfectly with our overall theme.


Transition kicks off on May 13 and will run until May 31.  Our official opening is Friday May 13, from 6pm-9pm.

Opening hours will be 12pm-6pm Monday-Friday and 11am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

It all happens on Jordan Street, in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle.  (Map http://bit.ly/gSlZdj)
