Roger Hiorns Seizure

Sculpture at Longside

Open weekends and school holidays

Faced with the demolition of the South London housing block in which it was originally situated in early 2011, Seizure was acquired by the Arts Council Collection, thanks to a gift by the artist, Artangel and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation through the Art Fund, with the support of The Henry Moore Foundation.

The work, weighing over 31 tonnes, was successfully extracted from the property in February 2011, following meticulous planning which saw one wall of the flat removed before the whole structure was pulled out and subsequently transported to Yorkshire Sculpture Park, where it is presented within a new concrete structure commissioned from Adam Khan Architects.
