Yorkshire Sculpture International; A festival of sculpture
Across Leeds and Wakefield
Saturday 22 June – Sunday 29 September 2019
Free and open to all
For Yorkshire Sculpture International, Sean Lynch will realise a project for the Henry Moore Institute Research Library based on the life and work of ‘Flint Jack’, a nineteenth-century Yorkshire antiquarian, vagabond and highly skilled artisan, who sold fake megalithic axe heads and ceramic and stone carving forgeries. Despite their lack of historical providence and verification, these objects still populate many UK museums.
