PERRY GREEN.- A major exhibition at The Henry Moore Foundation in Perry Green, Hertfordshire, will for the first time show works by some of the most recognised contemporary artists alongside those of Henry Moore.

Body & Void: Echoes of Moore in Contemporary Art, will be the first exhibition to look at how Henry Moore's sculptural vocabulary has been explored and reinterpreted by contemporary artists, placing their works alongside some of Moore's key works. The exhibition will be spread across the outdoor landscape at Perry Green as well as in two of the artist's favourite working spaces on the estate, the Exhibition Gallery and the carving studio, now opened up for the public to visit.

Outdoor works will include large-scale sculptures by Rachel Whiteread, Tony Cragg and Thomas Schütte, alongside Henry Moore's Reclining Figure: External Form (1953-54), on loan from the University of Freiburg in Germany. Both Richard Deacon and Richard Long will produce new works specifically for the exhibition, to be sited in the grounds of Perry Green.

The exhibition will continue in the Exhibition Gallery and the carving studio with works by Joseph Beuys, Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor, Sarah Lucas and Rachel Whiteread, shown alongside a series of works by Henry Moore: These include Stringed Mother and Child (1938), Reclining Figure (1959-64). Working Model for Upright Internal/External Form (1951), Helmet Head No 4: Interior-Exterior (1963).

Drawings, paintings and installations by artists including Paul Noble, Simon Starling and Paul McDevitt will be on show and photographs of some of Richard Long's most famous pieces of Land Art, which echo Moore's preoccupation with found objects, as is most evident in his maquettes made of small pieces of bone, stone, and shells.

The exhibition is curated by Anita Feldman, Head of Collections and Exhibitions at The Henry Moore Foundation. A fully illustrated catalogue will be published to coincide with the exhibition. The Foundation will also release for sale a previously unpublished limited edition graphic, Opening Form II (1979).
