'Metamorphosis'

City:

Eligibility:

Public Art Commission

Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Aintree University Hospital -Main Entrance

Liverpool University Hospitals Foundation Trust (LUHFT) invites applications from artists to create a high quality, innovative and thought provoking piece of public art. The proposed new artwork will be displayed outside the reconfigured main entrance and will complement the existing           commissioned works on display around the Aintree site.

Project Brief

The artwork must:-

Relate to the overall theme of the commission

Be site specific and weather durable

Create a sense of “welcome”

Reflect Aintree hospital's place as an anchor institution

Commission Theme

The overarching theme is “Metamorphosis”

Artists are invited to explore this theme in any medium providing they adhere to the project brief. We have chosen this theme to reflect the transformation and continual change within the hospital  and the hospital estate. There is a symbiotic and collaborative relationship between staff members of every discipline who when working together exemplify the phrase;           ‘the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts’.  Whilst there is considerable latitude within the brief this will be a very prominent piece of art at our main entrance and will be the first welcome to the hospital.

Commission Budget £10-15K

For the proposed piece the quoted amount should cover :-

The workshop period, any inspirational or engagement visits to the site, transport costs, materials and the development and creation of the final work.

Installation will be the responsibility of Aintree Hospital maintenance team guided by a risk         assessment and method statement which includes detailed installation plans from the                  commissioned artist(s).

Aintree is an extremely busy hospital site with high patient throughput. Maintaining a clean and safe environment is important therefore all artwork must be robust, easy to clean and maintain.

Commission Deadlines

The closing date for submissions 5pm Friday October 30th 2020.

Anticipated installation date 30th March 2021

All submissions will be reviewed by an Arts Steering Group and shortlisted candidates will be     invited to a short interview before a judging panel at Aintree Hospital site in mid-November. We envisage the successful artist(s) to begin work immediately with the artwork ready for installation in March/April 2021.

If selected for commission there will be consultation, engagement and participation with the         Estates and Facilities team at Aintree Hospital.

Artist Specification

We are looking to recruit artists with the following qualities:

A track record of producing high quality artwork and meeting deadlines

An ability to inspire and to take inspiration from others

Experience of working with a wide range of audiences

An understanding of site specific public art

A sensitivity to the lived experiences of hospital users when developing and delivering artworks
