Jun 16, 2018 - Jun 16, 2019
Founded in 1907, the FANY rescued wounded men directly from the battlefields, linking the front line with field hospitals.
 
Visitors to Yorkshire Sculpture Park will see an intervention in the landscape, comprising an inscribed fence above a trench. Occasionally activated by a horse and rider, Palmer’s work combines sculpture, soundtrack and performance and symbolises the new freedoms afforded to women in the war.
