Description - Henrik Hakansson: One Hundred and One Pieces of a Tree by Marcella Beccaria
Nature or culture? Nature and culture? The Swedish artist Henrik Hakansson walks a tightrope between these two poles. He brings them together, allows them to intermingle, collide with each other, and yet remain distinct. His latest work represents a kind of culmination of this process. This book follows and extends an exhibition at KODE Art Museum and Composer Homes in Bergen in Norway, where a tree has been dried out and dissected into 101 parts, to be put on display like a forest of sculptures. The natural entity becomes a work of art as a shared, fragmented environment. The publication captures a special atmosphere of meditative calm and vibrant diversity of meaning, and connects the Bergen piece to a selection of earlier works.
