Major Leeds show for Ian Kiaer

A major exhibition of the work of Ian Kiaer will be on display at the Henry Moore Institute this spring.

The London-born artist uses discarded materials to create his work, such as packing foam, chocolate wrappers and Perspex sheets

Tooth House brings together a selection of Kiaer's works made between 2005 and 2014, the most recent created in response to the galleries of the Henry Moore Institute.

The exhibition title is taken from the work of the architect and designer Frederick Kiesler (1890-1965).

Ian Kiaer studied at the Royal College of Art and the Slade School of Art. He lives and works in London.

Solo exhibitions include Centre International d'art et du Paysage, Vassivière, (2013); Aspen Art Museum (2012); Kunstverein Munich (2010); Bloomberg Space (2009); British School at Rome (2005) and Tate Britain (2003).

His work is held in a number of international collections including Tate, Fondazione Morra Greco and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.

Ian Kiaer: Tooth House will be on display at the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, from March 20 to June 22.
