I like art but I don’t really know what it is, I mean what is the
the difference between high and low? What’s old and what’s
new or now or nouveaux as the case may be with these finer words for the
Liverpool loves art but I’m sure it’s as naive as me when
it comes to understanding it. The city shows the uncontrolled excitement
of a toddler full of cake and Fanta at a birthday party.
Artists come from across the globe to grab this city by the arms like
estranged uncles and aunts and swing it in circles dizzy and giddy, until

authorities and the local this and that; 'Liverpool, its time for your
nap. The Biennial has worn you out and it’s almost time for the
But Liverpool has always been a naughty child that stayed up late and
blew raspberries at convention. Representing this, Wolstenholme Projects
presents the most refreshing, down to earth, damp and dilapidated scenery
for an ensemble of performance pieces, which will either give you a renewed

more fashionably now wearing one at the height of summer in Korova around
I haven’t mentioned much about the artists because visit Wolstenholme
Square and their work will do that for me, and I haven’t mentioned
much of their work because as I said I like art but I don’t really
know what it is but like Liverpool I love when it's there.
I will however make special mention to a featured performer Alix Poscharsky
who I tip to be the next big Young British Artist, she taught me not every
Young British Artist has to be British or young.
