Henry Moore: Configuration

Henry Moore Institute

A rare chance to see the work of Henry Moore at the Institute in Leeds. This will be only the fifth display in the Institute’s 28-year history to focus on Henry Moore’s work.

Configuration brings together a small, focused selection of sculpture, drawings and collages highlighting Henry Moore’s ceaseless investigation into form, material and volume. Throughout his lifetime, Moore collected objects such as bones, stones, shells and driftwood which he would turn over in his hands, build up, press into clay, cast, or photograph. This haptic practice saw Moore humanise these forms, and capture their relationship to the body both physical and imaginative.
