dot-art and Liverpool BID Company are looking for the fourth artist to have their work installed on The Liverpool Plinth in 2021. The sculptor, who must live and work in the North of England, will see their work displayed on the site within Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage waterfront at Liverpool Parish Church.
The Grade II listed Liverpool Parish Church, the Church of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas, has been a place of worship since the 13th century and overlooks the city’s famous Three Graces.
The current statue installed on The Liverpool Plinth is Gail Dooley’s Tidal Shame. The sculpture, created by the Yorkshire based artist, depicts a ceramic gannet, a seabird common in Liverpool, entangled by authentic sea plastic and detritus collected on beach shores across the UK and Merseyside.
The new sculpture will be chosen by the same process as the previous three; via Open Call. It is available to any artist working primarily in sculpture based in the north of England to submit existing work. The application process opens on Monday 18th January. The selected artist will also receive a £1,000 prize.
SUBMISSION CLOSING DATE: Friday 19th March 2021 at midnight.
