TOBY ZIEGLER / CHARLES SARGEANT JAGGER
Extended until Sunday 12 April 2015
British artist Toby Ziegler draws on historic and contemporary representations of war for his new commission, from the WW1 plaster memorial frieze, by renowned war memorial artist and Yorkshireman, Charles Sargeant Jagger (1885-1934) to the shocking present-day imagery of war porn - trophy images posted online of war casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan.
For the first time in 20 years, Jagger's WW1 frieze from Wakefield's collection will be back on display, supported within a network of aluminium joists. Ziegler's three-part sculptural composition also features a three-metre high sculpture of a human foot and a 3D printer that will produce a Newell teapot (a test-card design) within the gallery space each day.
