Bethan Hughes

Based in Leeds, Bethan’s work explores the meeting of the 2D and the 3D, bringing together the digital and the physical. She uses 3D visualisation software to craft objects and environments which then undergo a process of translation as they migrate away from the screen (2D) and manifest as installations comprising of sculpture, audio-visual media and print (3D).

For Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019, Bethan worked with John Jamieson School. This project focused on the tactility and materiality of sculpture, working with disabled children from across Leeds to explore the sensory elements of installation art.

Our engagement programme

Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 had an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.

We explored sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
