2019 Circle of Life (Abidjan)

Created for the Abidjan Green Arts Biennale 2019 in the Banco National Park, Abidjan.

A big nest created out of branches, placed between a small, young tree at the entrance, a tall, strong tree on the left side and an old, dead tree on the right side.

This work offers a calm and protective nest in the forest, to contemplate the cycles of life and death. Made from dead branches, collected in the forest, the work connects three trees. A young and thin tree to the right of the ‘entrance’, where the circle is the lowest, a tall and strong tree on the left and a dead tree on the right.

According to the philosophy of the Abidjan Green Arts Biennale, all works were created with found, bio-degradable materials and as temporary works.
