Lucy + Jorge Orta: Diana

In their artwork, Lucy + Jorge Orta confront some of the 21st century’s most important issues including biodiversity, environmental sustainability and climate change. 

Diana, formerly known as Ulbelka, the ancient name of the river Huveaune and a water goddess - was renamed by the artists in 2014 to reflect her current location at YSP. Diana Beaumont owned YSP’s Bretton Estate from the late 1700s until her death in 1831 and was instrumental in landscaping the lakes and gardens.

The sculpture’s new name also references the Roman goddess of the hunt, wild animals and woodland, who was believed to have the power to talk to and control animals. This and Diana’s position surveying YSP’s 18th century designed landscape, allude to the complex relationship between humans and nature.
