Walter & Zoniel: Spectra

9 July - 16 October 2016

As part of the Liverpool Biennial Fringe programme, London based artists Walter & Zoniel will create a new Wall Work commission, SPECTRA. The artist duo invite the public help them transform the outside of Open Eye Gallery using giant catapults loaded with water balloons filled with paint.

Part-performance, part-installation, SPECTRA is aimed at all age groups and evokes a sense of mischief and its relationship to inspiration and creativity. By crossing the lines of what is normally allowed, those taking part are set free from the restraints of every day life.

The interactive installation explores the public perception of complimenting colours. By firing intensely coloured paint at Open Eye Gallery, the artists challenge the audience’s opinions and expectations of what a gallery should be.

The artists believe art is for everyone and encourage public debate. The paint colours offered to each person to catapult are selected based upon their opinions on art and relationship to Open Eye Gallery.

The Wall Work series aims to create a new visual dialogue between the gallery and its context, and collaborate with artists who work outside the field of photography and lens-based practices.

SPECTRA marks a return for Walter & Zoniel to the Liverpool Biennial following their previous installation in 2014 ‘The Physical Possibility Of Inspiring Imagination In The Mind Of Somebody Living’, which saw them filling a derelict building in Toxteth with live jellyfish.

In collaboration with Gazelli Art House.

Get involved and fire paint at our gallery walls:
Friday 8 July 2016, 6pm-8pm
Saturday 9 July 2016, 11:30am-4:30pm
