Liverpool Plinth

On 12 June we unveiled the first sculpture on the Liverpool Plinth. Gold Lamé is a striking sculpture that challenges the perceptions of disability in society. The installation is by disabled sculptor and artist Tony Heaton and is based on the famous Invacar – a small, blue, one-seater vehicle given to disabled people during the 1960s and 1970s. Sprayed gold and suspended vertically above the plinth, the sculpture reclaims the word lame and confronts negative stereotyping of disabled people the vehicle represented. More information about this and other artistic projects at St Nick’s can be found on the ‘Music and Arts’ page of this website.
