On the Heights – YSP group exhibition featuring Tom Lovelace


On the Heights is an exhibition showcasing new work from Miriam Austin, Sam Belinfante, Tom Lovelace and Frances Scott, four artists who were invited to spend two weeks living and working at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) in April 2017.

It explores the history, stories and landscape of the area, presenting a new dialogue between nature and experimental contemporary art practice for visitors to explore whilst extending YSP’s history of building relationships with and supporting young and emerging artists through the visiting artist programme.

Metro worked with Tom Lovelace producing C-Type prints for part of his installation which sensitively considers the extraordinary setting of YSP.  Considering slippages in the manipulated landscape, Tom’s work prompts moments of uncertainty and doubt across various locations in the Park.

. The Park’s Upper Lake is the site of a large sculptural work, partnered by another sculptural piece in the Formal Garden pond and a series of photographic, assemblage works in the Bothy Gallery.

Tom also presents a new performance work that takes the visitor on an alternative tour of the Park, in which stories and anecdotes about YSP’s history and landscape are presented, but cannot necessarily be trusted.

Exhibition dates: 28th Oct –3rd Dec 2017

The exhibition takes place in the Bothy and in the open park
