Liverpool Biennial 2021: The Stomach and the Port

Festival Details - "Liverpool Biennial 2021: The Stomach and the Port"...

Liverpool Biennial is the UK’s largest festival of contemporary visual art. Taking place over public and unexpected spaces, historic sites and art galleries, the Biennial has been transforming the city through art for over two decades.

The 11th edition, The Stomach and the Port, explores notions of the body and ways of connecting with the world. More than 50 international artists have been invited to respond to this theme within the context of Liverpool. A dynamic programme of free exhibitions, performances, screenings and fringe events unfolds over the 15 weeks, shining a light on the city’s vibrant cultural scene.

We're excited to welcome Jorgge Menna Barreto, who has worked with the Biennial since 2018. He'll presents a version of his durational project Environmental Sculpture, culminating in a mural at Bluecoat and a publication. The publication, Enzyme #2: Life Systems, anchors on Menna Barreto’s research based practice focussing on how our environment is shaped by what we eat and how we live. Interested in reorienting our relationship with the natural environment, the research space at Bluecoat provides the backdrop for a mural, Mauvais Alphabet, entangling  drawings of common weeds found in Liverpool to form a community of plants which are mostly invisible and many times unwelcome, even though they play a vital role in the ecosystem. Both the publication and the mural are produced in collaboration with other artists and thinkers, including Liverpool John Moores University Art and Design students whose research, sketches and drawings will be woven  into the works.
