CAAPO 2010

Project History:

In 2010, CAAPO were commissioned by The Cooperative to produce a public development project, as part of the Official Liverpool Biennial Programme 2010.

This took the form of a residency and exhibition. The residency was open to the public throughout the majority of its duration. The main aim: To expose the creative process and develop a series of works through public engagement.

Conceptual Background:

CAAPO are interested in creating works that explore the concept of mapping in an intuitive manner: Maps that transcend a graph of geographical location and become a subjective manuscript of belief and experience.

Reference; ‘Mappa Mundi’ (Richard De Bello, circa 1300) – Hereford Cathedral
