About

Liverpool Mountain by internationally renowned artist Ugo Rondinone is a major new public artwork for the city region.

The 10-metre high sculpture is situated on Liverpool’s historic waterfront and consists of vertically-stacked rocks painted in bright fluorescent colours. Reminiscent both of ancient totems and of land art, Liverpool Mountain is inspired by naturally occurring Hoodoos – spires or pyramids of rock – and the art of meditative rock balancing. The sculpture appears to defy gravity in its teetering formation, poised between the natural and the manmade.

Liverpool Mountain is Ugo Rondinone’s first public artwork in the UK and part of his Magic Mountains series, with similar outdoor sculptures in Miami and Las Vegas.

Launched as part of the Liverpool 2018 programme, Liverpool Mountain marks the 10th anniversary of Liverpool European Capital of Culture, the 20th anniversary of Liverpool Biennial and the 30th anniversary of Tate Liverpool. It is supported by Royal Albert Dock Liverpool.
