Anthony Caro’s Leaf Pool (1996/2000) is the result of a collaboration between the sculptor and the award-winning designer and paper-engineer David Pelham. Caro was inspired by Pelham’s pop-up creations, seeing in them the potential for a different kind of art work available to a new and wider audience. Using the card in a way natural to it, Caro worked with Pelham to create ‘Leaf Pool’ which, as it is opened, grows into a sculpture before one’s eyes.
It was exhibited at ‘Foss fine art 2009’ and ‘Sixty Years of British Art’, 2 March – 2 April 2011, Bernard Jacobson Gallery, New York
