Heather and Ivan Morison have created a new work to mark the launch of The Hepworth Wakefield. It takes the form of an outdoor shelter for people to gather, relax, entertain and enjoy the waterfront location. The Black Cloud has been repositioned and modified in response to the architectural and industrial backdrop of The Hepworth Wakefield. The Morisons create powerful and sensory works that explore architecture and aspects of escape and refuge. Their work is an active engagement with materials, histories and sites.
The Black Cloud was originally commissioned by Situations at the University of the West of England for Victoria Park, Bristol in 2009.
