For her new video work, Scale of movements, Isabelle Gressel focusses on the overlooked movements that occur throughout cities. A choreographed collection of rattling bins and rustling leaves, tapping store signs and animal and human movements capture the urban activity and landscape that surround us on a daily basis.

On-site: The Plasterer
The Dead Pigeon Gallery – named in tribute to the many deceased birds that were found in the space before it was transformed into a gallery – presents an exhibition by a number of artists in residence who have taken up the challenge to make new works in response to photographs by Jane MacNeil documenting the first year of Coming Home Liverpool. Founded by housing expert Ronnie Hughes and artist Jayne Lawless, Coming Home Liverpool aims to bring the city’s empty houses back into use as affordable homes to rent.
