Nicolas Deshayes' limited edition Blueprint for Flints in Gluten, 2013 was produced on the occasion of his major solo exhibition at S1 Artspace. Crude Oil presents newly commissioned work by Deshayes alongside a personal selection of historical works from the Leeds Museums and Galleries sculpture collection. The two octopuses depicted here are taken from test prints which Deshayes' produced by pressing real octopi onto paper, allowing their ink to leave an imprint on the page.
