Rachel Kneebone: 399 Days

10 Juli 2021 00:00 - 24 April 2022 00:00

Yorkshire Sculpture Park is delighted to present - among other sculptures - 399 Days by Rachel Kneebone (b.1973) in the unique environment of the 18th-century Chapel.

Kneebone’s sculptures do not depict the full human form, but allude to the body through the use of a mass of legs appearing to be in motion, often shown in relation to organic forms such as flowers and orbs. Clay, and its more refined form of porcelain, have been used for thousands of years to make objects for the home and for display. Rachel Kneebone has developed her own unique form of sculpture, working primarily in porcelain to create highly complex and delicate objects.

For the YSP exhibition, Kneebone has made new sculptures, where motifs such as tendrils, folds, ribbons and spheres are fluidly interwoven creating a vine-like structure which protrudes from the wall.

The exhibition is supported by White Cube Gallery and is key in YSP’s 2021-22 artistic programme, which is dominated by women artists, and includes Joana Vasconcelos in the Underground Gallery and open air and the Arts Council Collection exhibition Breaking the Mould: Sculpture by Women since 1945 in Longside Gallery.
