ART OF THE WEEK
18 July - 24 August 2014
Arctic Earth by Los Angeles-based artist William Leavitt (b. Washington DC, USA, 1941) is on display at the Liverpool Biennial, UK (5 July - 26 October).
The work presents recognisable domestic interiors whilst adding an element of the bizarre in the form of the great outdoors. Taking on an air of science fiction, the images begin to lose their familiarity, dip into dysfunction and have a somewhat discombobulating effect upon the viewer.
