Ro Robertson: Yorkshire Sculpture Park
6 September 2022, 3:09 PM
We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Ro Robertson’s Stone (Butch) (2021) into the Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s permanent collection.
The sculpture reclaims a space in the landscape for queer and butch identities, which have historically been deemed ‘against nature’. Stone (Butch) prompts us to question who is depicted and commemorated in art. Made by plaster casting from rock formations at Godrevy Point, St Ives Bay, Cornwall. Robertson explores natural rock formations as queer forms and changing bodies. Installed near The Family of Man (1970) by Barbara Hepworth, Stone (Butch) reflects the landscape and artistic heritage of YSP.
