The Hepworth Wakefield presents Heather & Ivan Morrison, Ben Rivers and David Thorpe


WEST YORKSHIRE.- Opening on 11 February and running until 10 June 2012, this will be the first in a regular series of spring exhibitions that explore common concerns and themes in the work of some of the most innovative contemporary artists. Heather and Ivan Morison, Ben Rivers and David Thorpe use film, sculpture, installation and performance to pose questions regarding our relationship to nature and what happens when man-made and natural worlds collide. These exhibitions explore utopian beliefs and practices and an impending sense of apocalypse. Simon Wallis, Director of The Hepworth Wakefield said: “We are delighted to be working with these four artists, whose work has a fascinating resonance and dialogue with our collection. I look forward to seeing the rich variety of ideas and mediums within the gallery spaces and how they will, once again, transform our offer to our audience.” Heather and Ivan Moris
