Identity - We Are All Together

Main Cathedral 19th August 2023

10:00 AM - 18:00 PM


A thought provoking art installation by Peter Walker, exploring the concept of identity and how we are all connected.

Join us for Liverpool Cathedral’s largest installation to date...

From 28th July - 3rd September we will host ‘IDENTITY’ by Peter Walker.

'IDENTITY' introduces seven illuminated columns, suspended over the Well. Each column is lit, with individual strips of light representing the double helix of DNA and demonstrating the unique make up of each person. Together, the seven columns represent our distinct differences, gathered in union. 

The columns are wrapped in over 3000 individual portraits of the people from our amazing city, all photographed as part of Peter Walker’s 2022 installation ‘Being Human’, presented together as a collective.

IDENTITY’S visual impact is supported by its ability to change colour throughout its stay at the cathedral, powerfully representing symbols of various communities and our shared values as well as individuality, including our ethnicity, gender and sexuality.  

We look forward to welcoming everyone and celebrating our identity.
