‘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.
