Archive of a Tree is an installation which consists of different objects. An installation measuring 12×6 meters of wood and charcoal, drawings.
In this work I analyze, count and split up every aspect of a tree. The installation connects human control with the uncontrollable character of nature.
It contains about 2000 slices of the same tree. At the moment of sawing, the tree and I had the same age.The written context differs in every exhibition but generally consists information about my personal life, for example about birth, primary school, first boyfriend, but it also contains information about the history in general, and the decrease of the forest in the world. All textual information runs parallel to the age of the tree; a small branch stands for the year 2013 and a big trunk presents the year 1987.
