A CASE HISTORY
A Case History
John King 1998
What can easily be mistaken for forgotten luggage on the corner of Hope street outside LIPA, makes up this original piece by John King. A closer look reveals that the cases are made from some sort of coloured concrete, and have inscribed on bronze luggage 'tags' the names of famous Liverpudlians. In the background is LIPA.

A JOHN LENNON MEMORIAL
The words of the song: 'There Are Places I Remember' are inscribed on the stone monument in Durness in northern Scotland which is host to a special John Lennon Memorial Garden. The young John would often happily spend his school holidays with his late mother Julia's relatives - the Stanley family at this bleak seaside village. In later years he would take new wife Yoko, her daughter Kyoko along with son Julian in the mid sixties, only to accidently crash the car they were driving. They were taken to the nearest hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
