Katrina Palmer: The Coffin Jump
at Yorkshire Sculpture Park
From 16 June 2018
This summer, a new work by UK contemporary artist Katrina Palmer will be unveiled at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary, and YSP, The Coffin Jump takes as a point of departure the role of an extraordinary group of women in the First World War. Combining sculpture, soundtrack and performance, The Coffin Jump symbolises the new freedoms afforded to women in the war, with specific reference to the all-female First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY).
