Emese Benczùr’s Biennial piece at the Futurist Cinema, Liverpool – another of the fantastic old buildings sat rotting away in Liverpool. Lime Street generally seems to have been left to rot, which is odd considering how many millions have been spent on the Lime Street Station gateway, only for the first buildings that a visitor comes across are the likes of this.
Usual “old buildings rotting away” rant aside, it’s nice to see the Biennial using the existing surroundings like this, I like the subtle art that the Biennial brings to the city, it’s clever (and thought provoking, natch). Apparently this is lit up at night, not been down that way evening time for a while so if I get chance to snap it lit up this may make another appearance before the Biennial is over.
This is some top work Mark. I walked past this yesterday on the other side of the street &, even though I liked the sentiment, thought “How am I going to get an interesting shot of that?”. You have completely humbled me & made me remember that I’ve got to look at things differently.
