We spent much of the cold, blustery January amidst the Yorkshire Countryside, and although it might have felt at times like we had drawn the short straw (especially when compared to colleagues who were working in locations like the Jeddah Peninsula in Saudi Arabia!), the end result made it an invaluable experience. We had previously installed work by KAWS at Frieze Sculpture park but installing these hauntingly beautiful works at YSP, in the artist’s first major UK exhibition, was a unique and rewarding experience. YSP have commissioned this brilliant video which shows the installation of ‘SMALL LIE’ (2013) where you can see our project managers and technicians at work. The 10-metre tall sculpture can be seen with other works in the park as well as a collection of paintings and smaller sculpture in the Longside Gallery until Jun, 12 2016.
You can also take part in the #KAWSYourself Competition.
Take a selfie with one of the works featured in the show for your chance to win a £50 KAWS goody bag from Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Simply upload a photo to any of their social media channels using #KAWSyourself by 12.06.16 . For more details and T&Cs please visit the YSP Website here.
