The Wall Gallery, Second Floor

Part of the The Living Planet season

During 2020, FACT Together created a platform for 10 artists based in the North of England to present work online in response to the financial uncertainty caused by Covid-19 and the temporary closure of galleries and museums across the world.

Each of the artists selected created a new work within the theme of The Living Planet, the focus of FACT’s programme for 2020. This programme explores the ways in which wildlife, plantlife and other ecological systems have responded to the impacts of our actions and how we need to approach the natural world, and those who live in it, from a different perspective.

FACT Together artists received a grant, plus 3 months of professional development and support from the team at FACT to create artworks from home. Many of these artists had not previously created digital work, and the resulting projects include a podcast, games, short films, social media takeovers, interactive artworks, poetic interventions into digital diaries, workshops and more.

In this exhibition, we present a series of images, taken from each of the artworks, as well as a hidden Augmented Reality (AR) layer that can be activated during your visit.

Click on the 'artworks' tab to experience the works in full, from home.

All artworks were commissioned by FACT Liverpool in 2020.

Artist Q&A: In Conversation with Uma Breakdown

Uma Breakdown has made a visual novel in the form of a downloadable game for FACT Together, released earlier this week, called Animal Agency. Lesley, our Exhibitions Manager, had a chat with them about horror, critters, love, and how this commission altered Uma’s approach to world-building in the game space.
