Temporal – relating to worldly as opposed to spiritual affairs, secular, practical, earthly. Relating to time as opposed to eternity, temporary, lasting only for a time. From the Latin for stretch or measure.

Terrain – a tract of land or geographic area, especially with regard to its physical features. From the Latin for land or ground, (as opposed to the sea).

This exhibition by the Yorkshire Sculptors Group was initially conceived in response to the practical considerations of putting together a show of sculptural artworks that may have to be moved quickly and easily in the event of the gallery space being used for a seated event during the show’s duration. It was decided that all works exhibited would be mobile, whether this be through the addition of castors underneath the plinths, or wheels built into the construction of the sculptures themselves.

The artworks in this exhibition engage both conceptually and materially with concepts arising from their mobile and transitory nature, and as such bring to light wider social and historical concerns as to the relationship between sculpture and contemporary culture.
