"Turning The Place Over"

Your Ad Here

A council has changed a city centre eyesore into an eye-catching piece of art by turning the building inside out.

It's the brainchild of sculptor Richard Wilson, who cut an egg-shaped section out of the derelict building opposite Moorfields station in Liverpool, fixing the eight metre diameter piece on a pivot.

Mr Wilson is one of Britain's best known sculptors. He has been nominated for the Turner Prize twice and represented Britain at Biennial festivals across the world.

His artwork, called Turning The Place Over, has cost £450,000 and will run from June 20th until the end of 2008.
