Posts Tagged ‘Yorkshire Sculpture Park’

We had a quick stop last weekend on way home from St Helens, stopping to see family around Sheffield.  We met at YSP as there is a memorial plaque on a tree in the park to a family member.  Pretty special place to have one.  As time was limited, this visit we stuck to seeing the newer sculptures.  Tony Cragg was great as were the 80 sculptures by Zak Ové, Black and Blue: The Invisible Men and the Masque of Blackness.  Pretty impressive lined up as an army and great title for the sculptures. Ai Weiwei’s Ai’s Circle of Animals / Zodiac Heads (2010) is also on display.  We saw a much smaller version of this at Blenheim Palace back in 2014.  And there is a serene head of cast iron called Wilsis by Plensa; almost as good as The Dream by Plensa in St Helens!
