Nude artwork created by internationally-acclaimed British artist Roger Hiorns is now on show at The Hepworth Wakefield.
The 37-year-old’s entire body of works, Untitled (Youth), is the first to go on display in the gallery’s new contemporary art space and former mill, The Calder.
Mr Hiorns’ live artwork comprises of naked youths watching a fire until it burns out while posing on various found objects, including street benches, jet and car engines, plus stainless steel tables.
The models then move from object to object while visitors watch during timed intervals throughout the day.
There is also live audio transmitted directly from Wakefield Cathedral into the building to provide a backdrop of everyday sounds including coughs, footsteps, choir practice and organ music.
