The Sunday Video: Turning the Place Over by Richard Wilson
Via biennial.com [with interjections by ARTLURKER in brackets]
“[Apparently] the most daring piece of public art ever commissioned in the UK, Turning the Place Over is [purported to be] artist Richard Wilson’s most radical intervention into architecture to date, [where by] turning [a blind eye to the recent history of contemporary art] a building in Liverpool’s city center [stands not only as a testament to his lack of imagination, rudimentary 21st century technologies and the frequent misplacement of cultural funding, but specifically as an apparent homage to the work of the late Gordon Matta Clark whom if alive would surely be foaming at the mouth and seeking to turn Wilson] inside out. One of Wilson’s very rare temporary works, Turning the Place Over colonizes Cross Keys House, Moorfields. It runs in daylight hours, triggered by a light sensor.” – www.biennial.com
