Canal & – Billboard Installation

Another interesting public manifestation of our ‘Canal &’ collaboration with artist Alan Dunn and Liverpool Biennial is the installation of this huge collage artwork at a billboard site – 227 Knowsley Road, Bootle.

The billboard illustrates some of the many contrasting ideas and suggestions for the future of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal (put forward  by over 2000 Bootle and Seaforth residents.)

Suggestions range from tunnels of love to koi carp, from using the Canal in a Bond film, to safari parks and staging an annual “throw your husbands in’ day.

The piece is installed to coincide with Liverpool Biennial’s ‘Urbanism‘ – 16-20 September, at St Winnies School, Bootle, Liverpool.

Design by artist Alan Dunn + Re-Dock
