Event description

Description

This event is part of the INSIDE/OUT Lecture Series and is brought to you by the Leeds Beckett University School of Art, Architecture & Design and Yorkshire Sculpture International. Tamar Harpaz will be talking about her work, experiences and sculpture.

Tamar Harpaz (B. Jerusalem) lives and works in Amsterdam. Tamar graduated from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, and was the recipient of the Rijksakademie Fellowship Award in 2016, and the Wolf Fund Anselm Kiefer Prize in 2013. In 2018, Tamar had a solo exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and Edel Assanti in London. Tamar is best known for sculptures that use light, mirrors, and lenses to create uncanny optical illusions. Combined into meandering installations, they unfold into narratives that touch on the cinematic and spectacular, but lay bare the simple mechanisms of their creations.

Other recent solo exhibitions include ​March Madness at Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen (Holland, 2017); ​Kitchen Sink Drama at Center for Contemporary Art Tel Aviv (Israel, 2014); ​Girl-to-Gorilla at Sommer Contemporary Art, (Israel, 2012). Recent group exhibitions include Rolling Snowball, 8th edition at CEAC Xiamen (China, 2017);​Sense of Sound, Dordtyart (Netherlands 2017); ​Artricks at The Israel Museum (Israel, 2013); ​Reinventing the Future at MACRO (Italy, 2013); ​WYSIWYG at Tel Aviv Museum of Art (Israel, 2013).

Tamar Harpaz will be showing new work at Henry Moore Institute in Leeds as part of Yorkshire Sculpture International.

About Yorkshire Sculpture International

The first Yorkshire Sculpture International takes place across Leeds and Wakefield from 22 June until 29 September 2019.

The UK’s largest dedicated sculpture festival, a series of exhibitions, international commissions, events and learning programmes not seen on a scale anywhere else – with sculpture in its broadest forms on display across four major galleries – the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park – and outdoors in Leeds and Wakefield.
