Occasional Geometries

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

15 Jul - 29 Oct 2017

The YSP presents an exhibition of works selected by Bangladeshi-born artist and guest curator Rana Begum. Begum has made her name through immaculately constructed abstract installations, and here chooses works from the Arts Council Collection by artists who share a similar viewpoint. Throughout the Longside Gallery, Begum’s selection creates an architectural, spatial and playful experience – one that is animated through movement and changing light. The exhibition takes its name from Richard Wentworth’s photograph Tirana, Occasional Geometries (2000), which features in the show. In his photography, Wentworth documents the everyday, paying attention to objects, occasional and involuntary geometries, as well as uncanny situations that often go unnoticed. Find out more about the ‘Occasional Geometries’ exhibition from the YSP’s website.
