Seel Street/Slater Street

The Liverpool Billboard Project sought artists to respond to particular sites in the city to develop specific works which begin to tell us something about the people of the city of Liverpool. Huyghe was invited to react not only to the location of Seel Street but also to the chance to develop a sequential piece. For two weeks, the site hosts a Huyghe work. For the next two, a commercial poster will be installed. This will be followed by a second Huyghe piece for a further two weeks. The artist is thus able to question public perception and memory, playing with small differences between his two posterworks. The piece will become a slow motion flux between the artistic and the commercial use of outdoor advertising locations. Alan Dunn
