on a quiet street in liverpool, a derelict building in the toxteth district amazes passers-by with an unusual sight installed within an otherwise abandoned site. artist duo walter hugo & zoniel have placed a massive, glowing water tank filled with live, luminous jellyfish behind an unused storefront shutter, automatically opening at 10:00 in the evening to reveal the ethereal creatures to the street.

‘the physical possibility of inspiring imagination in the mind of somebody living’ is a temporary, site-specific work presented by the gazelli art house, alongside the liverpool biennial. every evening from now until july 27th, the psychedelic display of deep sea swimmers is exposed to the public, inviting the community to generate interest in, and ownership of, the creative project. rather than promote the site through press and marketing, the artist’s have intentionally, quietly opened the installation for the residents of the area, in order to allow people to experience the surreal situation with genuinely fresh eyes.
