The Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield is hosting a unique performance by women weightlifters in the shadow of the iconic Barbara Hepworth “ Family of Man” bronzes next month.

The project is the brainchild of London artist Helen Benigson and explores issues around women and their weight, set against the impressive statues.
