Liberty Lollipops by YARA + DAVINA
Location: Morrison's Car Park, Widnes
Day: 18 September
Time: 12.00pm, 2.00pm & 4.00pm
For Liberty Lollipops, artist duo YARA + DAVINA
have been working alongside young people from
our Liberty Changemakers programme in Leicester
to explore the concept of crossing metaphorically - specifically considering the crossing from isolation back into social society - and of slowing down,
asking what it means to stop and pay attention, alongside the literal freedom of one's movement:
To stop or be allowed to cross the road.
Artist duo YARA + DAVINA make social practice artwork, creating ambitious public artworks that respond to site, context and audiences.
In their work, they are taking inspiration from the everyday, using a lightness of touch to make
works that are accessible and thought provoking.
They have created artworks for multiple world
leading art venues, recently including Somerset House.
