This new contemporary art exhibition explores the future of planet earth.

The exhibitioin features curious life-forms and strange landscapes created by nine artists. In their sculptures, paintings, sound-art, performance art and videos, every colour and sensation is heightened – and it is all a bit scifi.

What if life on earth has become just a memory? What if these artists' re-creations of nature are now the only way of experiencing it? The exhibition is presented as an offering to aliens who visit us in the future. Instead of seeing nature in reality, this is what they encounter.

Ferens Art Gallery has delved deep into the Hull Museums Collections and uncovered gigantic insect specimens and breathtakingly ornate seashells. Demonstrating that real life can be just as strange as fiction, these insects and shells will be put on display alongside the artworks.
