Private View: Rachel Goodyear at YSP (Wakefield)

Director's Talk, North Member Programme

We are delighted to be able to offer members a limited number of invites to the Private View of Rachel Goodyear’s new exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP), featuring newly commissioned works alongside recent drawings. Exploring themes of fear, desire, vulnerability and isolation, Goodyear invites the viewer into a dark place where human psychologies and animal behaviour collide and merge.

The exhibition includes a new series of works inspired by time spent walking and discovering the physical and imagined landscape at YSP, resulting, for the first time, in small-scale sculptures. As if scrambling from the pages of Goodyear’s sketchbook, figures appear in the gallery as animations and porcelain sculptures, still fragile and unsure of their new configuration.


This event is part of a series of events programmed by the Contemporary Art Society in the North East. Membership cost is £25 for New Members. This is the 3rdyear of the pilot programme and we are currently offering programming until July 2012.
