#tbt to #TonyCragg’s pioneering exhibition in 2017. . A ‘radical materialist’, Cragg defines #sculpture as a ‘rare category of objects’, and takes a taxonomic approach to his own practice, something which was reflected in the show. . #Repost @missburrows90 #YorkshireSculpturePark #Yorkshire #ContemporaryArt #ArtWithoutWalls

#NormanAckroyd made his first #etching over 60 years ago. Created in the same period, 'Storm Over Gildersome' (1959) – an atmospheric etching on #steel which depicts the #skyline of the Yorkshire village – features within the artist’s #YSP exhibition and has never been shown before. .

These dark winter days offer the perfect conditions to see one of the latest additions to our open-air collection. ‘No Borders’ (2018) by @hilaryjack_ is a #neon artwork which displays the words of #AmeliaEarhart, the pioneering and celebrated American aviator. . Earheart’s words are still very relevant today. In using them in this work, Jack shows how they can be read in the light of contemporary #politics. . #HilaryJack, No Borders, 2018.

Happy birthday to Welsh sculptor #BarryFlanagan who was #bornthisday in 1941. #YSP celebrated the work of the eminent artist in 2010 with a playful display on the formal terrace, including Large Left-Handed Drummer (2006) . Flanagan is perhaps best known for his dynamic, often monumental, bronze hares, which spring into life. When asked about his use of the hare he described the magical experience of seeing a hare running on the Sussex Downs. This event prompted the first Leaping Hare sculpture which he conceived in 1979. . 📸 @jontywilde . #ysp #yorkshiresculpturepark #Flanagan #fbf #flashbackfriday #art #sculpture #artwithoutwalls #contemporaryart #hare

Have you seen @kimsoojastudio's 'A Needle Woman: Galaxy was a Memory, Earth is a Souvenir' at #YSP yet? . The spectacular 14-metre-high sculpture was developed with scientists at @CornellUniversity, New York, who formulated a nanotechnology film applied to the acrylic windowpanes that most closely mimics the iridescence of butterfly wings. . 'A Needle Woman' will also form part of Kimsooja's upcoming YSP exhibition 'To Breathe', which opens on 30 March 2019 . #ysp #yorkshiresculpturepark #kimsooja #art #sculpture #artwithoutwalls #contemporaryart

Happy birthday to @marcquinnart! . The artist’s sculpture Wilder Shores of Desire can be seen at #YSP. The enlarged orchid, created using 3D scanning technology, illustrates Quinn’s interest in humankind’s increasingly one-sided relationship to nature, in which human desire attempts to manipulate nature to its own ends. . Appropriately, in the context of YSP, Wilder Shores of Desire is sited in a man-made landscape that was conceived as a pleasure ground in the 18th century, overlooking an exotic vista of imported plants and trees. . 📸 @jontywilde . #ysp #yorkshiresculpturepark #marcquinn #nature #art #sculpture #artwithoutwalls #contemporaryart #bornthisday
