Melbourne artist Paul Yore could face up to 10 years in prison for possessing and producing child pornography after the seizure of artwork from a St Kilda gallery.

Detectives raided the Linden Centre for Contemporary Art on Saturday and removed a number of images from Yore’s installation, Everything’s F—ed, which allegedly depicted sexual acts superimposed with children’s faces.

A Victoria Police spokeswoman said a 25-year-old Footscray man was interviewed by detectives on Monday before being released pending a court summons.

She said the man was likely to be charged with producing and possessing child pornography. The production charge carries a maximum sentence of up to 10 years under the Crimes Act.
