THE LOST WORDS
Jan 19 - Jun 6, 2018
The Lost Words is a unique collaborative project between award-winning author Robert Macfarlane, and acclaimed artist and author Jackie Morris, in response to their belief that nature is in retreat from our children’s stories and imaginations. The exhibition presents a new series of poems and accompanying illustrations that conjure the beauty of nature, for visitors of all ages.

May 25 - Sep 2, 2018
British artist Jodie Carey has created three striking site-responsive installations for London’s Foundling Museum. A sea of delicate, ceramic fragments produced from fired clay-covered fabric swatches covers the gallery floor. Upstairs two monumental works made from plaster and bronze cast in the earth are set amongst the historic Collection. On display for the first time, these poignant works encourage visitors to reflect on the elemental nature of the Foundling Hospital story – of love, loss and survival.
