Site-specific installation/photographic work
12 photographs, C-print on paper
Developed with the support of the Association of Norwegian Visual Artist (NBK).
With referens to Keith Arnatt's work Self–Burial (Television Interference Project) from 1969, the work is set in the natural landscape but leave no evident trace behind. A birch tree is buried and gradually disappears vertically in to the ground. In this sequence of images the landscape photographs use a kind of pictorial conventionality with theatricalisation, highlighting the presence of the tree by the inversion of its nature.
Tree–Burial consist of the remains from the burial act that took place in a forest during the Kjerringøy Land Art biennale at Kjerringøy island (northern Norway) and a photographic series presented in the sequential form of its original staging.
