Coal Forest will see the site transformed through a series of magical and thought-provoking art installations in themuseum and colliery heritage buildings. Neon lungs glow in the heart of the colliery ventilation system. A plainsong chant leads to a kaleidoscopic vision of coal; past, present and future. A curious, tree-like figure has taken root in front of the blacksmith’s forge. An unearthly stag is disturbed as it grazes in the depths of the mine. Extraordinary and ancient insects creep through the colliery site.
