The Boyle Family at The Henry Moore Institute

The Henry Moore Institute, Leeds is bringing together a glittering array of archaeologists, art historians and sculptors, to consider the overlap between sculpture and archaeology. Their motif is the Boyle Family's 'Study of Broken Up Concrete and Earth' (2002-3). Mark Boyle and Joan Hills, while making psychedelic stage sets for the band Soft Machine in the 1960s, began a series of resin ground casts-eerily like the bottom of excavation trenches-that continues today with the participation of their two artist children. A film about the Boyle Family will be screened at 'Object-Excavation-Intervention', 3-5 June. Tickets from Liz Aston, tel 0113 246 7467, email
