Yorkshire Sculpture Park presents an extraordinary body of new and recent work by renowned Spanish artist Jaume Plensa.

29 Palms is a 50-metre curtain of poetry made of suspended steel letters, an enormous curtain of text running the length of one gallery with poems by Blake, Baudelaire, Ginsberg, Goethe and Léon Felipe.

The Sculptures such as House of Knowledge, Spiegel and Heart of Trees feature Human figures formed by painted stainless steel typographic letters.

The Jaume Plensa exhibition at YSP runs until 22.01.12
