New 'Dazzle' installation at Liverpool ONE
Following the launch of the 'Dazzle Ship' last month, Liverpool Biennial has commissioned a new Dazzle piece by artist Carlos Cruz-Diez which has now been installed at the Liverpool ONE shopping centre.
‘1 Couleur Additive Liverpool ONE, Liverpool. Paris, 2014’ takes the form of a ‘crossing-type’ piece, which spans Thomas Steers Way and links Liverpool ONE to the 'Dazzle Ship' on Liverpool Waterfront.
Chris Bliss, estate director at Liverpool ONE, said: “The installation is really striking and something which we believe will be extremely popular with everyone who visits our wonderful city. It will become a real talking point and is bound to be well photographed.
“This further strengthens the strong links which Liverpool ONE has with the fantastic cultural attractions in our city and shows how a visit to Liverpool ONE is far more than just a shopping experience.”
Sally Tallant from Liverpool Biennial added: “Carlos Cruz-Diez is one of the great figures of contemporary art, especially kinetic-optic art. His works can be found in prestigious galleries all over the world, including Museum of Modern Art in New York and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. It’s an honour to be able to bring two pieces of his work to Liverpool for the Biennial.”
