The Life of Trees


01.10. - 13.10.2022


The Life of Trees. Exhibition by Barbara Nowy

The trunk of each tree presents the base of life facing us humans. With its roots, which can emerge on brittle ground, it reaches deep into the ground, seeking water and nourishment in all of our mother earth. Hidden from the eye, the annual rings inside the trunk tell of good times and bad. Silent and breathless at the same time, the colors, furrows and scars of the bark show endless images full of emotion. High up, however, the branches drift in the most diverse ways and in all directions - life paths like - to establish connections with each other and with those next to them. In doing so, they gather strength from all weather, rain or shine. And the breathing of their leaves or needles makes us humans feel alive. In the crowns of the trees, new life blossoms on the youngest shoots and grows into fruit. Thus, every tree is a mirror of ourselves, whose tranquility and steadfastness offers virtuous examples.

The exhibition will be on show at BIKINI BERLIN from 1 to 13 October 2022
