Exclusive Friends of YSP event
Hot Heads Research and Development Project


The Friends of YSP are invited to become an important part of an exciting collaborative research and development project being undertaken by arts companies pa-BOOM and Trans-mutation.

Funded by Arts Council England, the project aims to design, test and build a series of large-scale sculptural head charcoal braziers/fire sculptures. Inspired by artists including Jaume Plensa, the project explores the use of fire and heat as a sculptural medium in a meeting of pyrotechnic science and art.

The development phase of the project includes testing the work with a live audience, to gather feedback that will help shape the future of the work. This test ‘performance’ is taking place at YSP and is open exclusively to Friends.
