Laura Belém’s The Temple of a Thousand Bells


The Liverpool Biennial is one of my favourite times of year, when the city has a wide range of artists bringing the city some beautiful installations. Brazilian visual artist Laura Belém‘s artwork, The Temple of a Thousand Bells was situated at the Oratory beside Liverpool Cathedral, the piece is composed of a thousand hand blown glass bells and a polyphonic sound track creating a 3-D effect. My photos are of the Bells and the Oratory.

The small bird is Tracy Emin’s The Roman Standard – which features a small bird on top of a four-metre high bronze pole – is a tribute to the city’s famous symbol the Liver Bird.The sculpture was commissioned by the BBC as part of their contribution to the art05 festival and Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture.
