Microzine, 65-67 Bold St (from 22nd June 2006)
In probably the smallest art space available in Liverpool (blink and
you might miss it) hangs the best and most comprehensive catch of popular
‘band’ photographs. The artists portrayed from both past and
present are intertwined with written referral and quotes as to their personal
Photographed by Andy Earl - the prolific ‘muso’ photographer
who has snapped stars like Madonna, Prince and Robbie Williams - and in
conjunction with the current conceptual idea from Rizla brings you ‘Inspired
By’. This weeny ‘off shoot’ exhibition (the root show
is at The Exhibition Gallery) is now showing at Microzine, 65 - 67 Bold
St, entrance is free and opening times are: 10am - 6pm Mon-Fri, 12pm -
The images make great viewing, there are fourteen in all (alas thirteen
actually as ‘Hard-Fi’ have been pinched off the wall) and
they all emit that star presence and attitude you get from musicians,
albeit these seem a little bit cold and hard. Flashes of colour, reds
blues and yellows bring a snatch of warm cohesive quality to this set.
One of the best inspirations comes from Faithless, who are inspired by
Buddhism, quote: ‘Buddhism predominantly promotes that every individual
life has a power and force and this at best is to be respected and protected’.
Well worth a visit.
