Artist Rebecca Chesney begins a year long residency at YSP, researching the bees and plants of the Bretton Estate to develop new work. With the help of experts and visitors, Chesney's residency also draws attention to the plight of bees. Bees are under great threat and their disappearance would have a catastrophic effect on nature and humans. The artist's previous projects, which look at changing environments and human activity, have resulted in exhibitions of drawings, photographs, installations and films. The YSP Centre display includes further information, ways to become involved in the project and a virtual hive. On MAY DAY BANK HOLIDAY join the artist and local experts for walking tours in the landscape, see live hives on site, and take part in bee-friendly activities for all ages. Project supported by First Direct.
