Here come the trees!

22 August 2008 by Lisa

This week saw the unveiling of the mysterious ‘Arbores Laetae’ or ’Joyful Trees’ which started spinning near the Cains Brewery in Liverpool, to herald the run up to this year’s Liverpool Biennial.  It all kicks off on 20 September, with the announcement of the winner of the John Moores 25 Contemporary Painting Prize at the Walker Art Gallery.

The creation of artists Diller Scofidio + Renfro, these spinning trees are certainly a bit spooky, but also not great if a dog decides to spend a penny nearby I think. Here is a video so you can check it out for yourself:
