The Hepworth has a permanent collection as well as the visiting exhibitions. It has recently acquired this piece by Phyllida Barlow: RIG: untitled; stagechairs, 2011. Phyllida uses inexpensive everyday materials - in this case rough timber, cement and paint - instead of traditional sculptural materials like bronze, marble and fine woods. Here she explores the idea of sculpture as a stage, with forms based on folding chairs which represent both performer and viewer.
I was drawn to detailed aspects of it more than the whole shape, again responding to the textures and colours. I enjoyed finding photos within it.
