Follow the constellations across Liverpool City Region
Lost Castles brought people together to create cultural cardboard superstructures in the six boroughs that make up the Liverpool City Region.
And now a new initiative, Constellations Presents, is set to bring new artworks to Liverpool, Wirral, Sefton, Knowsley, St Helens and Halton, with artists being inspired by a specific constellation and its relationship to local stories.
The month-long project, instigated as part of Wirral Borough of Culture, will be launched at West Kirby from October 18-20 when Studio Joanie Lemercier creates an immersive installation at the Marine Lake.
French artist Lemercier is primarily focused on projections of light in space and its influence on our perception, and Constellations will involve water particles, light and sound.
Constellations presents Cetus at Mann Island in Liverpool from November 1-9 as part of this year’s extended River of Light celebrations.
The Creation will come to Sherdley Park in St Helens on November 5, while Parabolic Lightcloud takes place on the Crosby Coastal Path from November 8-10.
Lost Castles, 2018
Nova takes to Victoria Park in Widnes from November 15-17, and the final installation is The Garish Sun at Huyton Village Centre from November 21-23.
Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram said: “Lost Castles perfectly showed how art and culture can celebrate local identity, whilst also bringing us together under one idea. I’m excited about Constellations Presents as it does exactly the same thing.
“It will shine a spotlight on six very different parts of our region at the same time as showing how connected we are. I really hope people take this chance to go to as many of the installations as they can and to discover great new places on their doorstep.”
