I love this place. The fourth time I’ve had the chance to visit the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, just off the M1 to the East of Huddersfield, and each time I take something precious away with me. I just wish it were closer to home. Wonderful setting with acres of pasture (no grazing sheep or cows this time), woodlands and lake, peppered with world class sculpture. The visitors centre and exhibition space is one of the nicest I’ve been in (similar in feel to Manchester’s Whitworth Gallery), with a superb cafe terrace view.
Exhibitions this time included New York street artist Kaws with his large comic-like characters, and in complete contrast Bill Viola’s stunningly profound audio-visual works that dwell in the mind long after.
