beewax, pigments, birch


Bark protects a tree from unwanted influences from the outside world, such as climate change, extreme weather events, viruses,  fungi and bacteria; serving as a protective shield.

The forests are our shields, protecting us, as bark protects the trees.

Surrounded by over 40 birches I feel sheltered in my wooden cabin and workspace. Collecting fallen pieces of birch bark form the basis of this installation, painted with beewax and pigments.
