Miss Liverpool City Region visits:- 'The Danger Tree'

THE current Miss Liverpool City Region, Elli Wilson, has visited the World War 1 exhibition:- 'The Danger Tree' that is located until 3 September 2017, at Mann Island, Liverpool. If you have not already been, this is a very powerful exhibition that uses art work which comes to life using augmentive reality, to help tell the story being the Great War. The paintings also carry soil in them, taken from the battlefields, in France. This is work shows the human costs of war in a very unusual and emotive way that is extremely engaging. This exhibition is located opposite the Museum of Liverpool, on the Pier Head. It is open from 11am to 6pm, 7 days a week.

The 15 painting exhibition is a collaboration, Scarlett Raven and Marc Marot, which opened in Liverpool, in November 2016, to mark 100 Anniversary Year of 'The End of The Battle of the Somme.'

Scarlett painted the images inspired by the works of several legendary World War 1 poets including Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Rupert Brooke. Marc has created the integrated animations and digital art that includes:- archive photographs and audio recordings of soldiers from World War 1. The moving renditions of the poetry were read out by leading British actors:- Stephen Graham, Christopher Eccleston, Sean Bean and Sophie Okonedo. Marc also blended these into the visuals text and animated graphics, along with archive film footage. To add more atmosphere to each of the works, bespoke music was written for each piece composed by Marc accompanied by sound effects.

The paintings within this exhibition are not displayed like in most art galleries, as they are housed within a specifically created installation, designed by award winning film set designer Kave Quinn, where you are met with a recreated replica of a bombed out gallery on the French / Belgium borders of 1916.

Don't worry if you are visiting that you don't have any tec to see these pictures come to life, as all the visitors are given iPads and headphones. They have all been set up to use a free app 'Blippar' which triggers the AR to engage with the paintings.

The Danger Tree is redefining how you interpret and engage fully with visual art. It is worth noting that this is a world first as no other exhibition has done this type of integration of art and augmentive reality.

In our next issue we will be bringing you an announcement that is connected to this visit, but in the mean time, if you are in the area, especially for the Clipper Race, it is worth going in to take a look, before is moves on to another City.

A collection of limited edition fine art and exhibition merchandise will accompany the show available online exclusively at:-
