I’m delighted at the opportunity to engage with the architecture of The Hepworth. It’s refreshing in its acknowledgement that the vicissitudes of light and time are intrinsic to the appreciation of sculpture and plastic form that for all too long has merely been considered 3-Dimensional.

This artwork, created exclusively for The Hepworth Wakefield is based on the speeds of sound and light and measures, specifically exactly one metre in width. The edition is typical of Wyn Evans’ practice which often links light, sound and the written word to create works distinguished by a minimalist aesthetic.

Using clear vinyl is an attempt to rupture existing systems of communication. Cerith Wyn Evans often uses this practice in his work—subverting certain given material forms, disrupting spatial-temporal coordinates, or adopting a communal rather than singular authorial voice.


The Hepworth Prize for Sculpture  was established in 2016 as a £30,000 biennial award recognising a British or UK-based artist of any age, at any stage in their career who has made a significant contribution to the development of contemporary sculpture.

In October 2018 the second  Hepworth Prize for Sculpture exhibition opened, presenting art work by the shortlisted artists  Michael Dean,  Mona Hatoum,  Phillip Lai,  Magali Reus and  Cerith Wyn Evans. To coincide with this The Hepworth Wakefield has launched three Artist Editions. 

The second Hepworth Prize for Sculpture was awarded to Cerith Wyn Evans at an award dinner at The Hepworth Wakefield on Thursday 15 November.
