Latent Power

A strikingly bold sculpture placed at a key gateway to the Kirkstall community, ‘Latent Power’ is a celebration of the rich industrial heritage and a symbol of the innovative spirit that continues to drive this community.

Chosen as part of East Street Arts’ ‘A City Less Grey’ programme bringing high profile public art interventions to communities across Leeds, Rebecca Appleby‘s work ranges from structural ceramics to industrial sculpture and experimental painting and draws inspiration from the continual development of urban landscapes.

Commissioned in partnership with Leeds City Council’s Town & District Centre improvement scheme, the public art improvements also include a series of banners created by local primary school children and adults with disabilities, facilitated by the artist.
