Mr McCall, who is now based in New York, said: “I am thrilled to be showing in the UK and particularly in the David Chipperfield designed galleries at The Hepworth Wakefield. These carefully proportioned and gently angled spaces are unusually sympathetic to the work on display.”
Mr McCall’s work is described as a cross between cinema, sculpture and drawing.

Visitors are encouraged to be active participants in the work and engage with the planes and chambers created by the projections. The exhibition runs until June 3.
