KATRINA PALMER : THE COFFIN JUMP
Jun 16, 2018 - Jun 16, 2019
Founded in 1907, the FANY rescued wounded men directly from the battlefields, linking the front line with field hospitals.
 
Visitors to Yorkshire Sculpture Park will see an intervention in the landscape, comprising an inscribed fence above a trench. Occasionally activated by a horse and rider, Palmer’s work combines sculpture, soundtrack and performance and symbolises the new freedoms afforded to women in the war.

Mar 30 - Sep 29, 2019
Kimsooja’s work references and takes inspiration from traditional forms of female labour and craft, such as sewing and weaving, to investigate the role of women. Her work also considers the concept metaphorically, seeing the body as a needle that weaves together the fabric of lives, cultures and cities, celebrating a shared humanity regardless of geographical borders.
