October 1 - 25 (closed early due to local lockdown restrictions)
|We are excited to
welcome The Singh Twins to OUTPUT gallery, two of Merseyside’s most
iconic contemporary artists. The Singh Twins have an international
reputation, and are known for their highly detailed, narrative,
symbolic and eclectic style which is rooted in Indian aesthetics. They
work in painting, illustration, writing and film, and engage with
issues around society, politics and culture.
For their solo
exhibition at OUTPUT, The Singh Twins will be presenting ‘THE MAKING OF
LIVERPOOL (2008),’ a 13 minute animation recounting 800 years of
Liverpool’s history and its achievements. The short film is an
exploration of one of their paintings, ‘Liverpool 800: The Changing
Face of Liverpool’ which was originally unveiled in 2007 for the city’s
800th anniversary. Supported by Arts Council England, 'The Making of
Liverpool' is directed, written & produced by The Singh Twins and
it is narrated by Mark McGann. Animation of the work was done by Andy
Cooper and his team (now Draw and Code) and there is an original song
titled ‘City With Wings’ by Steve Mason.
