Creativity: Being Human
Join us for Creativity, a part of Peter Walker's Being Human exhibition
Being Human, a new exhibition from renowned artist and Sculptor Peter Walker, will be at Liverpool Cathedral between 27 July – 30th August 2022. Alongside Creativity, which located in the Derby Transept, you’ll be able to view, Connection, Reflection, and Identity. To find out more about the complete exhibition, click here.
Peter has recreated an artist’s studio space, which has been populated with some tools of the trade, as well as some of his previous works. As you encounter sculptures, paintings, and drawings, you may wish to think about how you express your own creativity, and what this means to you. As Peter display’s his artist’s existential view of humanity, you may wish to think about your own.
The artworks on display have been selected from Peters's vast artistic output over the past 25 years, and showcase different elements of artist practice that Peter has undertaken.

Peter Walker created this artwork, especially for sacred spaces. The steel structure represents
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The DNA double helix is the molecule chain that coils and carries the genetic information for all living things.
He is asking, you the viewer, to question topics such as science and faith and how the two subjects philosophically intertwine.
