Liverpool Mountain is Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s first public artwork in the United Kingdom 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 stands outside Tate Liverpool on the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool.
Rondinone’s sculpture was commissioned in 2018 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Liverpool European Capital of Culture, the 20th anniversary of Liverpool Biennial and the 30th anniversary of Tate Liverpool.
Tate Liverpool is located in Liverpool in the United Kingdom’s north west. Opened in 1988, Tate Liverpool is housed in a converted warehouse of the historic Royal Albert Dock. Tate Liverpool has a vibrant programme showcasing modern art from Britain and around the world.
