Why is this Abandoned Warehouse Filled With Live Jellyfish?
If you go to Liverpool anytime soon, you might encounter a strange sight – a warehouse filled with floating jellyfish. This mesmerizing and otherworldly setting is the work of two London-based artists, Walter Hugo and Zoniel, who positioned a giant tank right behind the door of an abandoned department store.
The art installation, called The Physical Possibility of Inspiring Imagination in the Mind of Somebody Living, was opened in Liverpool’s Toxteth district a couple of weeks ago and it features jellyfish that float in a peaceful and hypnotic manner. Twisting the name, the art piece references Damien Hirst’s 1991 shark tank artwork titled The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living. The jellyfish piece was presented during the Liverpool Biennial.
A livestream of the event can be seen at the Gazelli Art House in London until July 27, 2014. Visitors can see it both from within the gallery but also from the street outside and can buy digital version of the art for a reasonable price.
