Turning the Place Over by Richard Wilson

Posted in Architecture, Installation, Performance, Sculpture by RADDblog on October 26, 2009

Turning the Place Over by Richard Wilson was an installation commisioned for the Liverpool 2008 Biennial. He made an 8 metres diameter ovoid cut from the façade of a building in Liverpool city centre and made to oscillate in three dimensions. The revolving façade rests on a specially designed giant rotator, usually used in the shipping and nuclear industries, and acts as a huge opening and closing ‘window’, offering recurrent glimpses of the interior during its constant cycle during daylight hours.
