About

Exchange Flags, a public square by Liverpool’s Town Hall, is the grand setting for Holly Hendry’s new large-scale commission. The sculpture takes the form of ‘pipe’ sections made from Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) and reflects the artist’s interest in the city’s architecture, from the Williamson tunnels that were purportedly built for land reclamation, to the old dock buried under Liverpool ONE. To bring together this new work, Hendry researched materials and material processes tied to Liverpool, particularly the techniques of the major ship builders of Merseyside, the use of cast iron for manhole covers, and the city’s pioneering employment of architectural supports and precast concrete in panelled buildings.
