Laocoon was the Trojan priest who warned that the infamous wooden horse was a Greek trick; not only was he ignored but the Greek gods permanently silenced him by sending giant serpents to kill him and his sons. This legend is the subject of the 'Laocoon' group, an antique sculpture with a legacy like no other. This exhibition is about the influence the 'Lacoon' has had, rather than being about the original work itself.The antique group is not included, but refenced by more recent scuptures by Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon and Eduardo Paolozzi.--from Introduction.
