More Information

Anthony Caro’s Leaf Pool (1996/2000) is the result of a collaboration between the sculptor and the award-winning designer and paper-engineer David Pelham. Known for working in a wide range of materials, Caro has now added heavy-weight card to his repertoire with this folding wall-sculpture. Consistent with his wish to make the physical and emotional experience of art more accessible, Caro was inspired by Pelham’s pop-up creations, seeing in them the potential for a different kind of art work available to a new and wider audience. Using the card in a way natural to it, Caro worked with Pelham to create Leaf Pool which, as it is opened, grows into a sculpture before one’s eyes.
