    Default Superlamb Bananas

    What is it? I am looking for information, but only I can find it:


    ADVERTISING




    The Super Lamb Banana statue by Taro Chiezo (1998) is seen here from the front and side. The yellow-painted scupture, part banana, part lamb, stands appropriately in front of the premises of Joseph P Lamb on Carpenters Row.

    I am not sure, but I am thinking that its a statue representative of the Liverpool 2008. If it is true, I like to know somes questions, for example, why is a banana and a lamb representative of the city? What people think about the statue?

    Thank u!!

    I believe it is to do when Garston docks used to import lots and lots of bananas before the last war, Marie. Add them to the importation of lambs you have the Super Lamb Banana!

    Oh! And the Lamb Banana is more than a mere simple statue!

    Most Liverpool people are very fond of Lamb Banana

    There are a minority who say they don't like this sculpture but I think the majority are very fond of it.

    I love it. I couldn't imagine L'pool without it now.

    The Superlamb Banana was not made to represent 08 though the culture company have used their logo on it as they tend to hijack things like the Big History Festival and the Mathew Street festival that were here before.

    The Superlamb banana is now outside the newer JMU building at the Tithebarn st, Vauxhall Rd and Hatton Garden junction and it has been lime green and purple depending on which charity or organisation rent it.

    Hi Lindy

    I wasn't so fond of it at first but have grown to like it!

    One, located as described above, moved from outside Joseph Lamp prior to the demolition of that site. There are hundreds of little replicas though in the 08 and gift shops etc...

    Default Go Superlambananas!


    Hope Students at Everton hard at work

    Go Superlambananas!

    Artists from all over the region are being invited to submit designs for quite possibly the most quirky and vibrant event being held throughout Capital of Culture year.

    With 2008 fast approaching, Go Superlambananas is also possibly the most ambitious and all encompassing project to yet to be announced and the organisers are calling for contributions from Birkenhead to Bootle.

    Running from June to September, Wild In Art, together with Liverpool Hope University and the City Council, are asking for local artists to become involved in placing over 100 highly decorated versions of the iconic statue in Liverpool, to form a trail through the city streets and boroughs as a demonstration of the region’s artistic talent and bursaries will be available for designing and creating the army of Superlambananas.


    Statues will form a trail through city streets

    ‘We wanted to come up with something in which people could use their imaginations, reflect the culture of the area and its sense of fun. Using this fabulous icon created by Japanese artist Taro Chiezo as a canvas is a great way of doing all that,’ said Charlie Langhorne of Wild In Art and organiser of Manchester’s memorable Cow Parade.

    ‘We want all forms of art involved, not just traditional paintings, whether professional or amateur, and across the spectrum. Poets, photographers, authors, new media … the whole lot, but using whatever they think will work on a three-dimensional canvas. We really want to reflect the area’s culture, vitality and humour. Let’s get these things flying, dancing and singing. It’s a really exciting project and has already caught people’s imagination.’

    Professor Bill Chambers of Liverpool Hope Cornerstone Campus in Everton said: ‘My aim is to show just how exciting, inventive and colourful Liverpool can be and this is the perfect project for us to show those things.
    Everybody knows what the Superlambanana is and where it comes from, so what we want to do is take the project to local schools and get them involved as well, prior The Big Hope Youth Conference taking place from June 4 to June 11, next year.

    The deadline for designs to be submitted is mid-February, so there is plenty of time for artists to get their thinking caps on and to make this one of the most memorable events of Capital of Culture year.’
