I can vouch for the coffee and friendly welcome in the nearby leisure centre, and after a good exploration of the promenade, I was able to get close to a couple of the figures nearest the shore.
here: "The sculptures are made from 17 body-casts taken from my body (protected by a thin layer of wrapping plastic) between the 19th of May and the 10th of July. The sculptures are all standing in a similar way, with the lungs more or less inflated and their postures carrying different degrees of tension or relaxation."
Of course, not everyone is a fan, for all sorts of reasons, see here, especially when it was proposed to site the figures permanently at Crosby, after they had been displayed at beaches at Cuxhaven, Germany, at Stavanger in Norway, and De Panne in Belgium.
But I enjoyed seeing the installation, watching the effect of the tides, and attempting to understand what was in the artist's mind.
A great day out!
