More Information

The exhibition was the largest showing of Phillip King’s work since his Hayward Gallery exhibition in 1981. Over 25 outdoor pieces were shown in Lower Park, around Camellia House and towards Lakeside. These were complemented by smaller works and maquettes in the Pavilion Gallery and Camellia House.

The selection of sculpture included many of the materials in which King has worked – steel, wood, plastic, fiberglass and aluminium and these forceful and often brightly painted works are nowhere more dramatically sited than in the rolling landscape of YSP. A new series of figurative Fire King bronzes, some never seen before, were shown in the Gallery.
