Liz West brings Our Colour Reflection installation to Grade I listed Mayfair building

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland is hosting Liz West’s ‘Our Colour Reflection’ installation at the St Mark’s building, a former church on North Audley Street, Mayfair, from 4-17 July 2016. The ten-day exhibition is open to the public and free to attend.

The exhibition is part of a wider initiative to open up the space to the public before it undergoes a £5m repair and restoration programme starting later this year. Grosvenor plans to redevelop this West End landmark heritage building to create a new retail, restaurant and community hub. The building will provide a meeting space for the community as well as 14,500 sq ft of shops and restaurants when it reopens to the public in late 2017.

Liz West, artist, said: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to exhibit my site-specific work “Our Colour Reflection” within the beautiful architecture of St Mark’s in London. Our Colour Reflection creates a conversation between the viewer and the setting using more than 765 mirrors made of coloured acrylic. There are 15 colours in all and the mirrors with diameters of 30, 40, 50 and 60cm are set at different heights so that they reflect up onto the architecture and reveal parts of the building that would otherwise be invisible, projecting colour up into the historic interior.”

Will Bax, Placemaking Director, London estate at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for the public to see inside one of the West End’s most historic buildings and a chance to enjoy the work of a renowned British artist. We are looking forward to seeing how Liz’s work showcases the building’s beautiful architecture and striking features for all to appreciate.
