Two pieces of artwork by Oscar-winning British director Steve McQueen are to be put on display at a museum in Holland.

The pieces, a short film of a dead horse in a meadow and a light box featuring a photo of a boy on a beach, have been acquired by bosses at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

The gallery's visual arts curator Bart Rutten says, "We are extremely proud of this dual acquisition. The museum maintains a fruitful, long-established relationship with Steve MCQueen."

The Brit studied art, focusing on short films, and went on to win revered British art honour the Turner Prize in 1999. He moved into directing feature films in 2008 with Hunger, and his third movie, 12 Years A Slave, won the Best Motion Picture Oscar on Sunday (02Mar14).

The pieces, created in the early 2000s, will go on display from 13 December (14).
