This video is a behind the scenes preview of the new installation that opened at Yorkshire Sculpture park on the 6th February. The piece, titled “SMALL LIE” is a fine, 10 metre tall wooden sculpture by KAWS and frankly, it looks amazing.
YSP presents the first UK museum exhibition by KAWS, the renowned American artist whose work has sparked global attention. The expansive Longside Gallery features commanding sculptures in bronze, fibreglass, aluminium and wood alongside large, bright canvases immaculately rendered in acrylic paint. The Park’s landscape becomes home to six imposing sculptures, including a new six-metre-tall work, which carry KAWS’ idiosyncratic skull and crossbones features upon almost-recognisable characters.
