    What's it about?

    Through her ongoing interest in the subject of self-care, Liverpool-based artist Frances Disley investigates Hull’s rich heritage around food, with an exhibition that features sculpture, painting, textiles and plant life. The Cucumber Fell in the Sand is supported by an extensive programme of activities, events and take home objects that celebrate the goodness of people and nature.

    The exhibition has been devised in collaboration with artists Gregory Herbert, CBS Studios (Joseph Hulme, Liam Peacock & Theo Vass) and Foodsketz (Alison Claire & Cat Smith). Each of the artists have collectively explored the philosophies of American architect and systems theorist Buckminister Fuller as well as Hull’s own Joseph Rank of Joseph Rank Limited. Both, pioneers in environmentalism and food production.

    The two-floor exhibition examines our relationship with food through living sculptures. Gallery 1 focusing on scent disseminating devices which enhance relaxation, rest and reflection. The exhibition continues to Gallery 2 with mobile planters filled with vegetables and scented plants associated with stimulation and energy as well as sculptural filtration systems that explore how food is produced commercially.
