Super Lambananas



For all those people who live outside of liverpool/wirral I thought i'd give you a peak at the latest public art exhibition for Liverpool's capital of culture.

It began with a 17ft long and 10ft high super lambanana that I used to walk past daily as it was located outside Liverpools JMU library. Oh and it was bright yellow.

Tell me what you think..

There are now an additional 124 smaller superlambananas designs of which were created by various group from the local community.
Between the 16th June and 25th August these will be on display all over the city and has ultimately led to a mass search in locating each individual lambanana.

I have personally embarked on the hunt for these lambananas with bernard and the kids and have found about 80 out of the 124 lambananas that are dotted around liverpool & the wirral.

They even run a story regarding an escaped lambanana....

All in all i found it a good day out; in that it was free, we got lots of good exercise and fresh air walking to the various locations and it also took us to parts of Liverpool that I had not seen before (meeting other hunters on the way), the kids loved it too. Although We haven't located all of them (as I know that it has become an obsession for some people) I am glad I was able to take part in an extremely captivating exhibition during Liverpools capital of culture year. If your local and you have a spare day I would recommend following the trail as it ends soon after which some lambananas will be auctioned off for charity.

What are your thoughts?

If I understand it correctly, this is an art exhibition which focuses upon these Lambananas. As a side issue, but also very valid, is the "life, be in it" message of getting out into the community to find these sculptures.

Am I correct? If so, bl***y good idea, if not, what am I missing?
