The Forestry Commission unveils major new sculptural installation at Suffolk’s Thetford Forest to celebrate 100 years of forestry.As part of its centenary celebrations, the Forestry Commission has developed Future Forest, a dramatic sculptural installation designed by Artistic Director Tom Piper MBE and featuring life-size sculptural figures created by internationally renowned artist Lisa Wright.
The artists present the figures as custodians of the forest, tasked with protecting it for the benefit of future generations. They illustrate the vital role that trees and woodlands play in safeguarding the future of our planet, their youthful forms aligning them with the next generation whose role it must be to act as custodians of our forests.
‘This sculpture trail will stop visitors to Thetford Forest in their tracks, both for the beauty of the figures and the drama the installations bring to the landscape.’ (PK Khaira Creswell
, Director of the Forestry Commission’s centenary programme)
