British artist Liz West transforms the interior of the former St John’s Church building now housing 20-21 Visual Arts Centre gallery by using hundreds of mirrors to reflect the gallery lighting into the roof space, projecting colour up into the historic interior. 'Our Color Reflection' is the name of the site-specific installation.
Viewers will see themselves in the mirrored surfaces as they explore the space - creating a dialogue between viewer, artwork and architecture.
Liz West creates installations that use light and colour to transform spaces, and people’s experience of them.
Liz West studied at The Glasgow School of Art. Previous large-scale works have included Your Colour Perception, which had visitors returning to Manchester’s Federation House to witness the space saturated in colour, and her acclaimed installation An Additive Mix at the National Media Museum.
Recent months have seen her shortlisted for the prestigious Aesthetica Art Prize, receiving a Bursary Award from the Royal Society of British Sculptors, and complete a major public-realm commission in the Spinningfields district of Manchester.
Our Colour Reflection has been made possible by funding from The National Lottery through Arts Council England.
