Henna Asikainen: NEST

Henna Asikainen: NEST


Lancaster Arts and We Live Here invite you to NEST 

The bird a nest, the spider a web, (hu)man friendship”   
William Blake  

Join artist Henna Asikainen to explore feelings of belonging and home by working together to build a human sized nest, looking out to sea on Heysham Barrows. 

Gather driftwood and foliage or bring along your own natural materials or spare fabrics to help construct a huge nest, connecting us with the natural world.  

Situated close to the historic ruins of St. Patrick’s Chapel in Heysham Village, all are invited to come and find us between 10am-4pm on Saturday 1 June. 

Henna is a Finnish artist based in the UK. Her artwork is concerned with humans’ complex relationship with nature and its intersections with social justice, climate justice, migration and notions of belonging.

NEST is part of LANDING, a co-commission by Lancaster Arts and We Live Here, which focuses on art, ecology and community, seeking to build deeper connections between people and the natural environments around us.
