Spring 2013 sees The Hepworth Wakefield present new work by three contemporary artists. Through collage, ceramics, painting, casting and installation the artists explore representations of the body and the legacy of Barbara Hepworth.
Alice Channer is inspired by jellyfish and other invertebrate creatures that have a recognisable shape, but are dependent on their environment for their body- shape. Jessica Jackson Hutchins creates sculptures from everyday objects, hand-moulding ceramic vessels to convey the human body’s weight, imperfections and frailty. Linder Sterling, who has experimented with collage for over three decades, has created striking new collages and light-boxes. Linder’s exhibition will culminate in a major new performance piece, The Ultimate Form, on Saturday 11 May featuring dancers from Northern Ballet, music by Cinematic Orchestra’s Stuart McCallum and costumes by fashion designer Pam Hogg.
Exhibitions supported by the Henry Moore Foundation
