Kyiv Sculpture Project (KSP) is the first international festival of contemporary sculpture in Ukraine. Amongst the final 15 artists selected includes international artist Sally Kidall from Australia with her installation: At the Table: are we sitting comfortably II.
The idea of the project is to present the latest trends and varieties of contemporary sculpture.
The festival is a non-commercial event that will be held every two years. The curatorial panel will select art-works for the festival on a competition basis.
The first festival of the Kyiv Sculpture Project will be held from June 2 till July 2, 2012. For a month, one of the most picturesque places of Kyiv, the New Botanical Garden, will host the art-works by Ukrainian and international, established and emerging artists.
Yorkshire Sculpture Park - the largest European sculpture park has became the partner of KSP. Established in 1977, and set in 500 acres of eighteen-century designed parkland, Yorkshire Sculpture Park is an internationally renowned centre for modern and contemporary art.
Dr Helen Pheby, curator at the YSP has became a co-curator of the Kiev Sculpture Project 2012.
