1x1.4m pigment colour prints. As part of Look11 - Liverpool's International Photography Festival.

Liverpool has more memorials to war and monuments symbolising heroes or battles won, in one square mile, than any city I know. New public war memorials are unveiled in the city regularly. A new statue for The King's Liverpool Regiment, 'Liverpool Pals', is planned to be erected for the centenary of WWI.

These public monuments are respectful and emotional reminders to the many lives lost at war and proudly celebrate those who fought for King/Queen and country. They are permanent symbols of British conflict and are a constant reminder that we have a long continous history as an active warring nation.

These architectural sculptures are placed in prominent public areas and help reinforce our notion of belonging and national pride. They may also encourage our collective acceptance of our current wars.

open Tuesday to Saturday 12-6pm
Liverpool-based arts organisation High Tide launches EDGEspace, a unique cultural venue promoting Experimental Dialogues for Generating Eco-culture. For more details see the High Tide web site.

This exhibition brings together a selection from two bodies of work showing the changing urbanised landscape surrounding two iconic rivers. The River Mersey from Stockport to Liverpool 1986-88 and the River Taff from the Brecon Beacons to Cardiff 1995-96: from Liverpool's former airport and now filled-in docks to the natural tidal ‘Tiger Bay’ re-branded as ‘Cardiff Bay’ with the construction of a barrage to create a permanent waterfront development.
