Another installation for the Liverpool Biennial is this sculpture of twisted metal pipework. Created by the artist Rosa Barba the industrial tubes carry the sounds of Liverpool from the street outside, amplifying them, & transmitting them into the room.
The sculpture visually resembles a network of nerves or capillaries & the sound emanating from openings in the pipework is almost organic. The whole work is designed to show the city as a living, breathing organism.
The installation is on the first floor of an empty shop in Renshaw Street. The shop used to be a Motorcycle showroom, Victor Horsman's, and back in 1968 I bought my first motorcycle, a Triumph Sports Cub, from there.
