A new audio-visual exhibition that explores the properties of coal will be unveiled at Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Saturday.

The Song for Coal work is a large-scale kaleidoscopic projection that features 152 separate panels in the shape of a rose window. Each panel has its own patterns, showing the physical properties of coal as a mineral and the cultural aspects of coal as an economic driver. The work - by Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson - will be displayed in the park’s newly restored 18th century St. Bartholomew’s chapel until Sunday, April 19. The exhibition features music based on The Coal Catechism (1898) by William Jasper Nicolls, which was specially created by the artists with help from Opera North.
