Roger Hiorns will be the inaugural exhibition at The Calder - The Hepworth Wakefield’s new 600 square metre contemporary art space. Internationally acclaimed British artist, Roger Hiorns, will exhibit his entire body of Youth works for the first time including newly commissioned works. The exhibition comprises found objects, which include street benches, jet and car engines and stainless steel preparation tables, all ‘activated’ through the presence of a naked youth, a small fire and a simple sequence of actions drawing upon the themes of ritual and behaviour. Performances will take place at different intervals throughout the opening hours and the sounds of Wakefield Cathedral will be streamed live into the space.
The Calder opening hours:
Tues – Weds: 12 - 6pm
Thurs & Fri: 12 – 9pm
Sat & Sun: 12 – 6pm
