Tree–Burial
2015
Site-specific installation and photographic series in 13 parts

Tree–Burial is a site-specific work and a photographic series, set in the natural landscape, where nothing is added but changed. The work visualizes a temporary juxtaposition; a birch tree is buried and gradually disappears vertically into the ground in a forest on the North Norwegian coast. In this sequence of images the presence of the tree is highlighted by the inversion of its nature.

Tree–Burial is a site-specific work, consisting of the remains from the buried birch tree in Nevelsfjord at Kjerringøy in Norway, and an independent photographic series of 13 framed photographs presented in a horizontal timeline. The project was supported by NBK, Norway. Thanks to Frank Storli for the birch tree and help.
