Larissa Sansour at Liverpool's Bluecoat

The Bluecoat is continuing its celebrations to mark the 300th anniversary of the Liverpool landmark with a new exhibition by Larissa Sansour.

And it’s a return to the School Lane arts venue for the Palestinian artist, whose major new solo exhibition In The Future, They Ate From the Finest Porcelain is now open.

The show features work which draws on the themes of politics, archaeology….and science fiction.

Jerusalem-born Sansour’s work encompasses photography, video, sculpture and installation. And the Bluecoat exhibition includes a film combining live motion and computer generated imagery exploring the role of myth in history, fact and national identity.

It also features artefacts including the porcelain of the title, and a large-scale suspended sculptural installation based on miniature versions of spaceships glimpsed in the film.

Visitors to the Bluecoat will also be able to see a new installation by Louisa Martin, titled Proxy, which uses choreographed light and sound.

And an exhibition charting the Bluecoat’s three centuries of history, first as a boys’ school and for the last 100 years as an arts centre, also continues – and has been extended.

Larissa Sansour and Louisa Martin’s work is on show until June 24.
