Liliane Lijn has been short-listed to produce the next artwork for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square. The other five artists on the short-list are Hans Haacke, Ugo Rondinone, David Shrigley, Mark Leckey and Marcus Coates.
The artists have been invited to create miniature versions of their proposed works, which will go on display from 25 September in the nearby church of St Martin-in-the-Fields. Two artists from the shortlist will be selected early next year by a panel of experts chaired by writer Ekow Eshun, and their works will go on display in, respectively, 2015 and 2016.
Liliane Lijn will be talking about The Dance, shortlisted for the Fourth Plinth and her upcoming installation, moonmeme, featuring in the ArtsCatalyst exhibition Republic of the Moon at the Bargehouse, with Jane Garvey on Woman's Hour in their Monday program, December 9th at 10 am.
October 2014, Musee de Picardie, Amiens, France
'Conjunction of Opposites: Woman of War & Lady of the Wild Things' will be installed in a church in Amiens for a period of 2-3 months.
Il Museo della Canapa, Sant’Anatolia di Narco, Italy, has commissioned a permanent installation titled 'Spinning Dolls'.
Spinning Dolls consists of five conical forms, of various sizes, made of layers of cloth that much like women’s skirts will spin, rising and falling in thrall to gravity and centrifugal force. The work is called Spinning Dolls because these forms are a many layered metaphor of the feminine archetype. Conical, skirt-like, dancing dizzily, they evoke the multiple meanings of creation, from the making of cloth through spinning and weaving to the Moirae, or Fates, the Greek Goddesses who spin out human destiny to the cosmic spinning of planets and particles.
10th January - 2nd February 2014
Moonmeme will feature in the ArtsCatalyst exhibition, 'Republic of the Moon' at the Bargehouse Gallery, Southbank.
