The Tate? No it's Yates's.

Byline: Will Batchelor

HATS off to the Liverpool Biennial, those arty types who brought Gormley's iron men to Crosby and this week revealed plans for another daring piece of public art.

Renowned sculptor Richard Wilson (suggested catchphrase: "I don't perceive it!") will cut a large oval section from the front of the old Yates Wine Lodge opposite Moorfields train station. The section will be fitted to a pivot and revolve twice per minute, to reveal the interior and exterior of the building in turn. Not unlike one of those secret bookcases that Scooby Do stumbles across so often.

Organisers promise that the installation - titled Turning The Place Over - will be "disturbing and disorientating from a distance" and "from close-up, a thrilling experience".

The official unveiling takes place in May. In the meantime, if you simply can't wait to be "disturbed, disorientated and thrilled", you'll just have to go to any other Yates Wine Lodge on a Saturday night, and check out the talent.
