Sculpture on Screen

Sculpture on Screen


To mark Yorkshire Day this year the Picture House are working with the Yorkshire Sculpture International to bring together a short programme of archive films which celebrate the work of three of our regions most famous sculptors, Damien Hirst, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.

Damien Hirst: Thoughts, Work, Life (2012) was directed and edited by BAFTA award winner Chris King (Senna) and features an exclusive interview with the artist, and rare early archive footage and stills. It is a unique opportunity to find out more about the real Damien Hirst and the development of his practice over the years.

Figures in Landscape (1953) - picture - is a poetic portrait of sculptor Barbara Hepworth and the otherworldly Cornish landscapes which inspired her. Figures in a Landscape was one of the first films backed by the BFI Experimental Film Fund. The film's innovative use of camera movement, alongside Priaulx Rainier’s score and future Poet Laureate Cecil Day-Lewis’s narration of writer Jacquetta Hawkes’ words, make it a collaborative artwork in its own right.

More films are to be confirmed, so visit the Picture House website nearer the time for further details.

DETAILS: Chris King and Dudley Shaw Ashton
DOC FEAT: Damien Hirst, Barbara Hepworth
ASSOCIATION: The Yorkshire Sculpture International
