Roelof Louw: Pyramid of Oranges

The ‘Soul City (Pyramid of Oranges)’ was first created in 1967 by South African artist Roelof Louw.

This eye-catching piece of art has now been recreated for a museum in Leeds as it revisits sculpture from the 60’s and 70’s. The exhibition entitled United Enemies: The Problem of Sculpture in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s, uses a recreation of Louw’s orange pyramid as its centrepiece.

Once again the piece has been created using over 6,000 locally sourced oranges and visitors are encourage to help themselves to an orange if they wish.

We can only assume they heard about our fabulous fruit wall at the Square Meal event and decided to have a go at something similar!

The exhibitions can be seen at the Henry Moore Gallery in Leeds until March 2011
