From the moment you walk into St George’s Heritage Centre, four iconic Cunard funnels meet you, which function as Zoetrope’s. These interactive works, showcasing animated paintings from the exhibition, feature four original soundscapes composed by musician Flying Dog Walking. Using a map, you are led deeper into the exhibition, through A sound installation ,spanning the majestic internal bridge of St. George’s – transporting you ‘on board’ Lusitania, through to four cabins with themed installations with musical zoetrope’s and atmospheric lightboxes and dramatic paintings telling the story of Lusitania. A rare collection of images will be displayed by kind permission of St Georges Hall of unseen images of Lusitania.There is a room dedicated to community Arts where Art works created with Bonny will be displayed.
This tactile and immersive experience is highly memorable, creating a strong connection for the visitor, to the historic ship as well as the commemorative event.
Bonny Cummins says “ I want to bring an artistic, contemporary experience of Lusitania to Liverpool, for the centenary, full of discoveries - creating exciting and moving journeys for the visitors as the art works are discovered.”
There are, additionally, Arts Workshops for children weekly and May half term activities with the Artist at St George’s hall, bookable through Culture Liverpool from mid March. The theme is transatlantic travel and young Artists will make animations, stained glass paintings, mono-prints and much more details will be displayed on the site .
There are pop up funnel events at the nearby St. John’s Shopping Centre.
