Kabir Hussain - Flatlands

08 January - 01 April 2016

Kabir Hussain is a sculptor and Leeds College of Art alumnus.

Responding to the topography of local Ilkley Moor and further afield in Norfolk where he is based, Hussain sculpts landscapes in bronze and plaster. The body of work presented here investigates notions of scale. Archaeological arrowhead artefacts are collected on walks then cast to create contemporary sculptural doubles. They are maps in microcosm and explore the Neolithic to Bronze Age continuum.    

A catalogue essay by geologist, Vanessa Banks, will be developed during the exhibition.
