SCULPTURES selected from a major collection and a top local artist are on show in the town.
The Re-Collect: Sculptural Responses to Ideas of Place within Collections is running at Huddersfield Art Gallery.
It features pieces from the Arts Council Collection and major works made by sculptor Deborah Gardner.
Yorkshire is often perceived as the home of modern sculpture and the sculptures chosen from the Arts Council Collection, housed at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, represent a range of episodes of sculpture making in Britain.
They aim to provoke a sense of place and complement each other.
The exhibition occupies four gallery spaces including sculptures by Ian Hamilton-Finlay, Richard Wentworth, Christine Borland, Mariele Neudecker and Alison Wilding among others.
Deborah Gardner explores how ideas of place and the nature of collections share a purpose in describing our relationship to the world around us.
One gallery focuses on ideas of time passing, allowing visitors to consider the transitory nature of place.
Gardner’s sculptural responses act as an acknowledgement of the national collective heritage of the Arts council collection, but they also focus on the particularity of Huddersfield’s local landscape, industrial legacy and architecture.
It runs until August 27 at the Princess Alexandra Walk gallery.
