Sunday just gone, the start of the half term holiday and a free day of beautiful sunshine to do what we wanted. My son chose an adventure day, so we hopped on a train the first train out of town and ended up in Liverpool. He said he wanted to see some art so we headed down to Tate Liverpool at Albert Dock.

There was plenty to see and do, first up we stopped by DLA Piper Series: This is Sculpture which includes Marcel Duchamp’s ‘Fountain’, Hans Bellmer’s ‘The Doll’, Amedeo Modigliani’s ‘The Head’, Andy Warhol’s ‘Black Bean’ soup can as well as work by Jeff Koons and Richard Long. My son was fascinated by Eva Rothschild’s ‘Knock Knock’, he couldn’t figure out how it stood up – was it suspended from the ceiling or was it magic?

He is also very much into drawing skyscrapers and buildings at the moment so Julian Opie’s ‘You See an Office Building 4’ appealed to him.

Next door to the sculpture room is the family area, my boy enjoyed creating his own sculpture from wooden blocks filled with coloured liquid and rearranging coloured squares and transparencies onto an overhead projector to make his own art.
