Liverpool Trip. 13th October 2011.
The rope walks.
A walk of unique cafes, shops and art.
AND Festival.
Tate Gallery.
(1) Dorothy Cross "Virgin Shroud" 1993 Cowhide, muslin, silk and satin. Inspiring the perception of women and the role of women. Looking at the female influence through the female family tree. Inspiration for "Success" project of "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Anorexia." Haunting and chilling piece. Has all the elements of gruesome history and the battle of equal rights for women.
Tate Gallery.
(2) Gilbert and George "Post Card Sculpture" 1974 Mixed media, and displayed in a format to show mental scapes and visual language. Communicates visually and vocally. Sometimes pieces become stronger in a sense depending on how they are shown to the public. Its all about interaction people!
