Liverpool Mountain

Liverpool Mountain by Ugo Rondinone, Liverpool, July 2019

This 10 metre tall sculpture, named Liverpool Mountain, is the work of Swiss artist, Ugo Rondinone. It is his first public work in the UK, and was commissioned by Tate Liverpool and Liverpool Biennial in 2018. It will remain on display until 23 October 2020.

These precariously stacked rocks defy gravity, with the mountain demanding that we look up and admire. Rondinone was inspired by naturally occurring hoodoos (pyramids of rock) and the art of meditative rock balancing. That inspiration is very clear when you stand beneath it.
