Situated in the Goree Piazza, in the shadow of the famous Liver Building, the Grassfelt covers a football pitch but not as we know it. Costa Rican artist Priscilla Monge, who pushes familiar objects into the unknown, has given her sports field a lunar landscape, changing the expected flat surface into a surreal series of mounds and gullies.

Landscape architect David Buck who collaborated on the landscape design says that the material was perfect for the subject. "The grass needed to look as if it had grown on site," he explains. "Obviously, there was no time for that."

The 330 sq metre untitled art work which took 160 cubic metres of recycled material to build was constructed by Talbot Sports Turf Installation, and will be on show until the Festival closes on 26th November.
