a condemned street-scape in Anfield, Liverpool

…the Dutch artist from Rotterdam joined curator Gabi Ngcobo and me for a public chat tonight hosted by the Liverpool Biennial, which was a good chance to get to know her and her work, including an inspiring series of projects in the local neighborhood of Anfield (famous for it’s Liverpool team football stadium, and rows and rows of newly bizarrely condemned beautiful old terrace homes)  known as 2 Up 2Down that started with a bakery and is continuing into preservation battles and home designs.
