Turning The Place Over ( 480x640 )
The former Yates’s Wine Lodge building turned into one of the most interesting Liverpool’s curiosities. A massive oval shaped section of the derelict building's exterior now rotates around and gives onlookers a glimpse of the interior without ever stepping foot inside. The selection is a piece eight metres in diameter fixed on a pivot. This work of art known as Turning The Place Over cost £450,000 and it was designed by one of Britain's best known sculptors, Richard Wilson. It started on 20 June 2007 and is due to last until the end of 2008.

The construction of this work of art was organized by the Culture Company and Liverpool Biennial, and for the people passing along every day (it is located next to the Moorsfield station), it is likely to be one of the best-viewed Capital of Culture installations, the most daring piece of public art ever commissioned in the UK.
