Rachel Kneebone @ Yorkshire Sculpture Park

10 July 2021 - 24 April 2022

399 Days, by Rachel Kneebone is in the unique environment of the 18th Century Chapel, which allows for another view of the sculpture at height from the balcony. Here, drawings from the artist’s Ovid in Exile (2016) series show different aspects of her practice as well as the relationship between works on paper and sculpture. The series refers to the famous Roman poet Ovid who was banished from Rome in 8 CE, for reasons that have become shrouded in mystery and supposition. Kneebone was drawn to the episode as an insight into the human condition, the creative and destructive impulses.

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 sculpture Roll (2017) is shown in the dark-wood panelled vestry.
