Festival work to stay in Yorkshire

Yorkshire Sculpture International has announced that sculptures by Damien Hirst, who grew up in Leeds and studied at Leeds College of Art, will have four works remain at Yorkshire Sculpture Park until 2022 with his Black Sheep with Golden Horns (2009) on exhibition at Leeds Art Gallery until June 2020.

Damien Hirst has said: “It’s been great having my work there for the festival, but I’m really pleased the sculptures are going to have a while longer at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I’ve loved seeing the response to them in that setting and it blew me away when I first saw them there. Also the sheep in Leeds Art Gallery, which was an important place to me when I was growing up – I’m so pleased it’ll be there for a few years now.”

Ayşe Erkmen’s site-specific sculpture for Leeds Art Gallery’s Central Court, three of four (2019) will remain on display until September 2020. Huma Bhabha’s Receiver (2019), installed outside County Hall in the centre of Wakefield for the duration of the festival, is now at Yorkshire Sculpture Park
