•  The Forest is The Museum was first shown at Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, The Arches, Fineshade Wood, Northamptonshire, UK in January 2020 suffering an early closedown due to Covid-19 lockdown 

    "I think the exhibition must be just hanging there in the dark. I quite like the idea of all the exhibitions in the world behind closed doors, in the dark - sort of frozen for a while.  Quite perfect for us ... the objects ended up being part of a 'lost'  exhibition ...  a good epilogue!"  Abigail Lane

  •  ABIGAIL LANE

    Born in Penzance, Cornwall in 1967, Abigail Lane was brought up in Bristol where she went to college to do an Art foundation course. She moved to London in 1986 to take her BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, where, in her second year, she was prominently involved in the exhibition Freeze, organised by Damien Hirst with his fellow Goldsmiths students, including Michael Landy, Sarah Lucas and Gary Hume. In retrospect, this ambitious three-part show has been seen to mark the beginning of the yBa phenomenon, of which Lane has been a key figure.

  •  The Ash Tree at Fineshade Wood

  • The Forest is the Museum is Fermynwoods Contemporary Art’s residency programme inviting leading artists to take inspiration from Fineshade Wood, Northamptonshire, UK. Baby Forest Creator Abigail Lane's collaboration with Lala Meredith-Vula, has culminated in a body of work that recontextualises lost property that the artists found abandoned in the forest. Most of these items have little or no monetary value, but through the process of collecting and cataloguing, the objects are given a new value and significance.  Artefacts from the collection are forensically photographed and presented as detailed platinum prints, a highly specialised photographic and reprographic process that dates back to the 19th century.  The everyday objects are now transformed into archaeological specimens.
