The Last Piece III

Installation using clay, 80 x 50 x 20 cm

Prague, Satalická obora


Classical sculpting work with clay along with time and growth in which a very unlikely event occurs. As it grows, the tree rips the ground that feeds him from its roots in an exact geometrical shape of a cuboid which does not normally exist in nature. When the roots are exposed, their natural environment can be disturbed, but also new knowledge can be gained that can influence the future growth of the tree. After documenting the roots, I backfilled them again.
