Rebecca Chesney @ Yorkshire Sculpture Park
1 April 2021 - 30 September 2021
Rebecca Chesney was a YSP Visiting Artist in 2010 and spent time surveying the parkland for species of bumblebees and solitary bees, and all the plants they feed on. After setting up two honey beehives on site, she shadowed the regional bee inspector to learn beekeeping skills and observe the life cycle of the honey bee at close range.
This year, Chesney returns to YSP to develop a new body of work in response to current bee populations. Our Future Sorrows invites visitors to the Park to participate in the project by adding to a digital map of bees and bee-friendly plants. Her aim is to reignite conversations about the importance of bees, the threats that they continue to be under, and what we can all do to help.
