WHO WE DID IT WITH:
WHAT WE’VE DONE
The big shebang to end our 2009-10 programme, Midnight Special was a series of late-night events exploring the outer-reaches of the contemporary language landscape at the Liverpool Biennial, supported by Diesel and Arts Council England. The line-up included music, performance art, debate and the spilling of bodily fluids, as well as our first Pecha Kucha event.
Performers/partners included: Michael Mayhew / Stop Sharpening Your Knives / Clinic presents / Moves Festival /James Wilkes & Holly Pester / a.P.A.t.T / Clive Sinclair / Mark Greenwood / Leafcutter John / Nathan Jones / Kate Tempest & Sound of Rum / Shunt / Hellfayre / Ross Sutherland / Tim Clare / Binary Jam / Pete Simonelli / Bridget Fiske / Wingwalker / Hive / Hot Club de Paris / Samizdat / Penned in the Margins
Mercy were open for the challenge of a dialogue outside the often restricted frame works of how organisations work, ambitious to make something happen, encouraged to take on board the artists needs, generous in their ambitions and with their time, hospitable in their nature, questioning in their approach.
- Michael Mayhew
Mercy’s activities make the decision to stay in Liverpool. That’s not an exaggeration. They genuinely seem to conceive and execute the things that make the city feel like an edgy, vibrant centre of creativity.
