As part of the Liverpool Visual Arts Biennial, Richard Wilson is in the center of the city. With his creation "Turning the place over" a facade fragment rotates 360 ° under the gaze of passersby.

A stone's throw from Moorfields station, the British sculptor Richard Wilson has performed an ovoid cutting 8 meters in diameter in the front of Cross Keys House. The fragment, then pivoted, rotates and oscillates on 360 °, hinting building bowels.
