Details

At Leeds Art Gallery a series of solo shows and new commissions will explore the breadth of contemporary sculpture-making, including the first solo exhibition in the UK by Nobuko Tsuchiya [https://yorkshire-sculpture.org/cms/artists/nobuko-tsuchiya/] (b.1972, Japan). Tsuchiya uses a variety of media to create imaginative sculptures that evoke an arresting narrative quality. She begins by collecting materials she is intuitively attracted to and combining them into polymer-like structures which are then cast. As part of the exhibition, Tsuchiya will use the gallery as a studio to assemble the final works.

Rachel Harrison [https://yorkshire-sculpture.org/cms/artists/rachel-harrison/] (b. 1966, New York) will exhibit a group of works that relate to the body. Harrison’s work draws from a wide range of influences, combining art historical and pop cultural references through a witty assemblage of materials.

Joanna Piotrowska [https://yorkshire-sculpture.org/cms/artists/joanna-piotrowska/] (b. 1985, Poland) will take over one of the galleries, carpeting the floor and installing a series of composed black and white photographs which explore notions of the human body and social structures. Piotrowska’s work examines the complex power dynamics and psychological effects of human relationships.

Also at Leeds Art Gallery, Damien Hirst’s [https://yorkshire-sculpture.org/artists/damien-hirst/] Black Sheep with Golden Horns will be on display in the historic Arnold and Marjorie Ziff Gallery. Part of Hirst’s iconic formaldehyde series, the work features a black sheep with golden horns, positioned within a steel-framed vitrine. This sculpture will be at the centre of the Ziff gallery display, in dialogue with the historic painting collection which covers the years 1888 to 1900.
