Bijan Amini-Alavijeh

Bijan’s work is informed by his ongoing investigations into the origin of the grid and the use of the grid throughout history in construction and architecture. In his earlier work – through painting, he used overlaying shapes and elements of repetition which gave a suggestion of architectural forms, leading to his recent sculptural works. Through his progression into sculpture, he has been exploring the material properties of concrete, wood and mud.

For Yorkshire Sculpture International, Bijan worked with refugees and migrants in Leeds, focusing on links between sculpture, construction and architecture, with a particular focus on materials common to building.

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.
