Henry Moore Institute (2023)

Artwork for the façade of the Henry Moore Institute, illustrating Anthony (Vahni) Capildeo’s piece ‘Word Fishing’ as part of the exhibition ‘The Weight of Words’. Inspired by the Ubatuba granite that clads the HMI, Capildeo looks through water and time, aquatic life evoking layers of language.

Shoals of fish play and welcome visitors, beginning on the outside, then leading through to the corridor to the gallery in a moment of peace.

You can visit this piece and exhibition from the 7th of July through to 26th of November in Leeds.
