Ugo Rondinone: Liverpool mountain

Opening

Location:Tate Liverpool

Date:23 October

Price:Free

Liverpool Mountain will be Swiss-artist Ugo Rondinone’s first public artwork in the UK and the first of its kind in Europe.

Inspired by naturally occurring Hoodoos (spires or pyramids of rock) and the art of meditative rock balancing, this 10-metre high sculpture will stand within Mermaid Courtyard, outside Tate Liverpool. It will consist of coloured rocks, stacked vertically which seem to defy gravity.

This outdoor sculpture marks the 10th anniversary of Liverpool European Capital of Culture, the 20th anniversary of Liverpool Biennial and the 30th anniversary of Tate Liverpool.
