A GIANT coloured vinyl quoting John Lennon lyrics has been installed at Liverpool airport.

The artwork is the last one from this year's Liverpool Biennial to be completed and is now on display to passengers.

The work, by Portuguese artist and political activist Rigo 23, has been hung around the check-in area, arrivals area, and on the glass facade of the airport terminal building.

They are daubed with excerpts from Lennon's songs.

These include such titles as Give Peace a Chance, Imagine, Well Well Well and Give Me Some Truth.

The piece looks at how the former Beatles' words are still significant today.

Lewis Biggs, chief executive of Liverpool Biennial, said: "As in our previous festivals, Liverpool Biennial is hugely grateful for the support of Liverpool John Lennon Airport."
