'We Are Here' is a new community-led, interactive video art installation created by award winning artist studio idontloveyouanymore at the historic Selby Abbey in North Yorkshire.


'We Are Here' explores our natural desire to contemplate radically different futures, reframe past histories and connect them to the present. Over the past two months, artists idontloveyouanymore have worked with Selby residents in a series of workshops to collect and curate their imagined versions of a future Selby, and the Abbey.

The creative ideas arising from the workshops have been used as inspiration for interactive digital artworks viewed through a series of ‘portals’, where the viewer’s gaze controls the perspective into the ‘future’. These imagined futures include Selby Abbey entirely immersed underwater and taken over by forests. The work invites viewers to consider all those who have stood within the ancient Abbey walls, and asks; were they also dreaming of the future? Did it look like this?

The installation is commissioned and produced by North Yorkshire based digital arts organisation Mediale. It is supported by North Yorkshire Council and launches Now Then!, a new cultural development programme which creates impactful cultural experiences in Selby, Sherburn and Tadcaster.

The installation will be open from 10am to 4pm each day (please check Selby Abbey website for details)
