This sculpture is Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s first public artwork in the UK, commissioned by Liverpool Biennial and Tate Liverpool in 2018.

The 10-metre high sculpture, situated on Liverpool’s historic waterfront, was commissioned to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Liverpool European Capital of Culture, the 20th anniversary of Liverpool Biennial and the 30th anniversary of Tate Liverpool.

Liverpool Mountain (2018) is part of Rondinone’s Magic Mountain series (started in 2016), with similar public sculptures in Miami, Gwangju and Las Vegas. The artwork consists of vertically-stacked rocks painted in bright fluorescent colours and is inspired by naturally occurring hoodoos – spires or pyramids of rock – and the art of meditative rock balancing.
