Box, Body, Burial: The sculptural imagination of Keith Arnatt
Herny Moore Institute
The Headrow, Leeds Tel. 0113 246 7467
Keith Arnatt (1930-2008) is best known for his conceptual photographic work from the late 1960s and early 70s and his subsequent documentary photography of people and objects in the landscape, but this exhibition shows that his artistic roots are also firmly grounded in sculpture. Through his preoccupations with the box, body and burial in the early part of his career, Arnatt challenged sculptural convention long before he was seen as a photographer.
