Rock Form (Porthcurno) - Barbara Hepworth
Returning to a memory of my schooldays.
The sculpture was unveiled in the Mander Centre shopping development in 1968 LinkExternal link. It was moved around the building as the centre was re-furbished and covered over and then it disappeared. We have a record of it in its 2003 location SO9198 : Mander Centre Statue - Rock Form (Porthcurno). There was concern that the work would not be returned in the latest re-incarnation but that seems to have subsided. I was surprised to see that it has been in the Art Gallery since 2015.

My personal opinion is that the sculpture belongs outside exposed to the weather.
