Unseeing Trace

Alastair Maclennan’s work for Liverpool is a week-long ‘actuation’ (MacLennan’s term for performance/installation). Trestle tables running the entire length of his space are set for absent guests. Their uneaten feast includes pigs’ heads, fish and other items symbolic in the Catholic tradition. MacLennan’s performance will take place, on alternate days, inside and outside this venue.
