The University of Leeds has commissioned Liliane Lijn to create a new work of public art for its campus.

The artwork will be unveiled in autumn 2018, when the building is due to open.

Liliane Lijn

Liliane Lijn’s work covers a large spectrum of interests, from Light and its interaction with diverse new materials to the development of a fresh image for the feminine. Lijn has taken inspiration from incidental details both man-made and natural, mythology and poetry, science and technology. Lijn is interested in the development of language, collaborating across disciplines and making art that is interactive, in which the viewer can actively participate.
