People who have saved this event:


Publicly Funded Minerals is a series of 48 collages by Leeds artist Karl Vickers, co-founder of serf studios and gallery.


From Amazonite to Zircon, this series uses collage to (re)imagine crystals, minerals and gemstones as public sculpture. The elemental materials appear in their natural state; placed into a landscape, atop a landmark spire or on a Billboard. Resembling design planning mock-ups, each collage is brought together in consideration of light and shadow, colour and scale in a playful manner.

This exhibition is part of Index festival and Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 as well as being the first exhibition in Assembly House's newly refurbished bar exhibition space.
