The Liverpool Plinth

About

A striking new sculpture that explores themes of mental health and depression, has been unveiled on The Liverpool Plinth at Liverpool Parish Church (St Nick's).

Created by North Yorkshire-based and Egyptian-born sculptor, Sam Shendi, whose works have been displayed around the world, Split Decision is a 4.5 metre, multicoloured, minimalist structure, and for the next year will sit on the famous plinth at the side of the church overlooking Chapel Street and the city's UNESCO World Heritage waterfront.

Brought to the city by Liverpool BID Company, in partnership with the church, and city gallery and art organisation, dot-art, Split Decision uses colours to express a multitude of emotions and fears that a depressed individual experiences when having to make a decision. Represented by the outstretched legs, the artist also hopes to convey the positive opportunities that sit on the horizon for those who are struggling to overcome their mental anguish.

With over two-decades in the limelight, Sam Shendi has won numerous awards for his work, as well as becoming a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors in 2014, and is renowned for his eye-catching, coloured abstractions of the human figure and mind.
