‘Custodians’ by Layla Khoo
‘Custodians’ by Layla Khoo is an evolving, semi-permanent art installation at Dalby Forest. In the piece Layla explores the history of rabbit warrening. It is inspired by the history that Forestry England is charged with preserving, and the future they plan to protect beyond their own lifetimes. The history protected in Dalby Forest lies everywhere beneath our feet, seldom even noticed but protected nonetheless within this working forest. Life-sized porcelain rabbits are placed in an otherwise unseen man-made rabbit warren, of sufficient historical importance to be listed as a scheduled monument, and yet lost to most visitors as part of the forest floor. These other-worldly white rabbits gaze upwards at viewers, their eyes silvery and reflecting the light shining down on them, highlighting the history of this land. This artwork identifies the site in the present. The future of the site is marked with sapling yew trees planted around its perimeter, an evolving feature with its own folklore connotations of death and rebirth, which will only come into fruition years after the sculptures have gone.

Len Tabner's Paintings from Wild Places
An exhibition of work exploring the power of the sea and the impact of industry on the spectacular landscapes of the north. Widely regarded as one of the UK’s best modern landscape painters, Len Tabner likes to be outdoors and to paint there, rather than in a studio. He lives on the North York Moors near the potash mine at Boulby, and has been down the mine on many occasions to paint what he sees there. He has travelled to the South Atlantic as a guest of the Royal Navy, and to the wilds of Japan, America, Scandinavia, Scotland and Ireland to paint.

Monet in Mind
French Impressionist Claude Monet’s stunning landscape painting, Antibes (1888) forms the centrepiece, and is the inspiration for, an exciting new exhibition opening at the Ferens Art Gallery. The masterpiece will travel to Hull for the first time as part of an innovative new programme in partnership with The Courtauld, London. Antibes was chosen to be the lead painting for the exhibition following a public vote and was designed to give young people in Hull an opportunity to engage with cultural decision-making. Indeed, Monet in Mind is in itself a showcase of the talents of the Future Ferens, a 16-25 year old volunteer group, who worked in collaboration with the Gallery on all aspects of curation, design and promotion of this immersive exhibition.
