RE-USING DERELICT SPACES:THE LIVERPOOL BIENNIAL 2010

The vestiges of "Rapid" are PART of the exhibition
spectral spaces; the camera blurs; memory blurs

You purport to re-vitalise extinct spaces…you DO, in way… and you revivify them.. to a degree…with images disurburbing and beautiful… BUT is STILL the OLD space; they are  STILL Rapid Hardware Mark One, Kellys and a rotting buiding in Wolstenholme Square… they are not what they were… and they are TEMPORARY useages. They do not conquer or redeem time but offer a valuable respite and haven from its inexorable progress.

Definitely not part of the official exhibition but, nonetheless, glimpsed!
