Gazelli Art House are proud to support the latest project by artist duo Walter Hugo & Zoniel, which runs alongside the Liverpool Biennial. ‘The Physical Possibility of Inspiring Imagination in the Mind of Somebody Living' is a temporary, large-scale, site-specific installation located in Toxteth, Liverpool. Every evening from 26th June — 26th July the shutter of a derelict building in Liverpool's Toxteth will anonymously open, emanating light and revealing tanks of jellyfish filling the space within. The psychedelic display is intended to have a discordant presence within the building and to intrigue those in the surrounding area. Walter Hugo & Zoniel are interested in the idea that art within the public realm has the potential to inspire; and they have decided to allow natural word of mouth within the community to generate interest in, and ownership of, the project. Rather than a marketing campaign, they have silently opened the installation for the residents of the area. As part of the durational site-specific project in Liverpool, Gazelli Art House in London will be live-streaming a video from within the jellyfish tank. Using the frontage of the gallery as a screen, viewers will be able see through the tank into the streets of Toxteth — creating a virtual corridor between the two cities. Walter Hugo & Zoniel will also be displaying photographic works — surreal records of the project's development.
