How can we transform our relationship with nature?   

This group exhibition and artist-led research project unearths and interrogates our connection with our habitats and ecosystems, both global and local.    

Artists Ackroyd & Harvey, Nestor Pestana, Bryony Benge-Abbott and Eloise Moody and Vicky Long, presented their work at Orleans House Gallery from 17 May until 14 November 2021 inviting us to question established notions of our place as part of the natural world. 

Alongside the exhibition, the galleries and grounds at Orleans House Gallery will become an ecocentric artistic research laboratory. Through engaging with all-comers, community groups, scientists and our ecosystem, artists will lead investigations into how we renew our connection with the natural world.  From collaborating with a protected Cedar of Lebanon tree in the grounds of Orleans House Gallery to embracing First Nation cosmologies and seeking where wild sits within all of us, you can read more about the Artist Research Projects and the work they will be doing here: Artist Research Projects.

Remember the Future is the opening chapter of our story of Cultural Reforesting, the beginning of our new collaborative multi-year programme investigating ways we might renew our relationship with nature.
