Artist Interview



We all form relationships with the buildings we inhabit. Everything from their location and design to the positing of a light switch conditions the way we think about and interact with them. Yet never is a building given the opportunity to reveal what it feels about us. For the duration of the Biennial Julianne Swartz has allowed Tate Liverpool – a converted warehouse re-opened as a Museum during the area’s regeneration in 1988 – to do just that. Its walls, windows, sinks, ventilators and stairs have been given ‘mouths’ with which to communicate.
