Work No. 175 Dada appropriation no.1. Human Glaciation

Context
__________________________________________________________________________________________
The Moore sculpture ” Two reclining Figures” is situated just west of Kenwood House.
It was made in 1963-4 but it’s been there on long-term loan from the Tate since 1982.

Henry Moore
Moore’s Two Reclining Figures ( 1964 )

Here, in what we believe was the first example of a new genre in appropriation art, a
portion of a famous work is presented as a new artwork in its own right.
Featuring a close-up photograph of Moore’s sculpture, we get an intriguing insight
into the particular chiselling technique he employed in creating these types of
outdoor sculptures; similar examples of which are to be seen outside various
well-known institutions up and down the country to this day.
