The forest of life

Organic material, paper and wood structure, 110 cm x 90 cm x 60 cm


The forest of life is a series of sculptures representing models of narrative miniature forests through the world, telling the relationship between man and nature. In these forests, objects or other elements, tied to trees, dropped on the ground or simply present on the territory leave traces of stories that one day took place in these places.

The involved characters were once the protagonists of multiple scenarios where the forest is queen. The stories of these forests have been frozen under glass indeed, but they are at once timeless and multi-temporal. It is a gathering place for both past and present but also for the future, now in the hands of the viewer.
