About Deborah Rundle
Following her residency in 2022, Deborah Rundle will share work created as a result of her research at YSP. The focus of her time in Yorkshire was an investigation into the intriguing history of Ann Ellis, who in 1875 led a group of 9,000 weavers on strike action in Dewsbury, just eight miles from YSP. Rundle visited sites of interest including textile mills and working- class history museums and collections and will exhibit a display of work made in response to her research.
Supported by philanthropists Sigrid and Stephen Kirk, and in partnership with Te Tuhi in Auckland, New Zealand.

Sean Scully: Wall Dale CubedMade for YSP, Wall Dale Cubed uses 1000 tonnes of Yorkshire stone from a local quarry and was constructed over many weeks. Importantly to the artist, this colossal work is built in the same way throughout, which connects to ancient stone walls in Ireland, so that ‘when looking at the outside of the block, one can feel the inside without being able to see it’.
