Jaume Plensa


"As a sculptor, I always need to collaborate with other people to bring my work to life, but when I draw, my work flows directly from my brain and my heart onto my hands and the paper. Drawing is an incredible laboratory where you can develop intuitions – I feel much more free than when I am working with sculpture. Drawing is a place for freedom." – Jaume Plensa 

In a special gallery walk-through led by Yorkshire Sculpture Park curator Sarah Coulson, Jaume Plensa tours his exhibition, In small places, close to home.

Presented inside Yorkshire Sculpture Park's Chapel and Weston Gallery, In small places, close to home features work in sculpture and drawing, highlighting the artist’s devotion to a multimedia process. Plensa investigates two and three-dimensional space by embracing a diverse array of materials including collage, etched glass, industrial paints, solvents, and suspended wire. An exploration of the range between language and silence, darkness and light, Jaume Plensa: In small places, close to home is an expression of the artist’s most significant themes.

The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Picasso Museum, Antibes, and Galerie Lelong & Co., Paris, and alongside a survey publication of Plensa’s drawings published by Skira.
