Giant vegetables appear at museum

Have your say

Two giant sculptures of courgettes have been placed outside the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds.

The institute has placed the artwork, made of concrete, outside the museum, in The Headrow, ahead of the Sarah Lucas Ordinary Things exhibition, which opens to the public on July 19.

She takes everyday objects and transforms them into works of art.

The exhibition, which runs until October 21, will feature both iconic works by the artist, alongside new works. The courgettes, which are placed at the top of the museum steps, are each about 6ft long and it is the first time they have been exhibited in public.
