Demolition Memorial Keepsake (LightNight Commission) 17:00 – 22:00

A stunning and evocative multi-screen video installation and series of sculpture pieces which explore memory through ritual. Created by Liverpool artist anti cool, the work is the outcome of a series of workshops held with people from around Liverpool. In these workshops anti cool explored the idea of special objects of memory which may evoke sadness or negative feelings in their owners, the funeral and ceremony practices of various cultures and countries and ultimately the ritual cremation of some of these objects.

Take a break from the LightNight trail in the relaxed atmosphere of Bluecoat’s secret garden, and enjoy live music performances and DJ sets. Refuel at the outdoor bar and barbecue, and grab some great food for all the family prepared fresh by the Bluecoat kitchen.
