Work acquired by Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Seizure at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
In 2008, contemporary artist Roger Hiorns oversaw the creation
of one of most unique works of art in recent memory by pumping over
74,000 litres of copper sulphate solution into a condemned London flat.
The result saw the building’s interior coated with otherworldly blue
crystals that formed on the walls, floor, ceiling, and even a bathtub.
