A Turner Prize nominee will present a new artistic installation at The Hepworth next month.

Anthea Hamilton will bring key objects from the Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge, which is undergoing renovation, and “reimagine” them at The Hepworth.

Her ambitious project will exhibit for the first time, a series of new works, created in response to works from the Kettle’s Yard collection.

The artist said: “Kettle’s Yard is a very special place, I find it graceful in every way. It’s an education at every turn. Bringing these selected objects to the galleries of The Hepworth Wakefield is the most incredible of invitations.”

Simon Wallis, director of The Hepworth and exhibition co-curator said: “Eight years ago I curated Anthea’s first major solo UK show at Chisenhale Gallery and it’s wonderful to be working with her again and to realise this exciting new installation within the context of the David Chipperfield-designed gallery spaces of The Hepworth Wakefield.”

‘Anthea Hamilton Reimagines Kettle’s Yard’ will be on display from September 15 to March 2017.

It forms part of The Hepworth’s fifth anniversary programme during 2016.
