Tree Story | MUMA, Melbourne

Tree Story brings together creative practices from around the world to create a ‘forest’ of ideas relating to critical environmental and sustainability issues. At its foundation—or roots—are Indigenous ways of knowing and a recognition of trees as our ancestors and family. An exhibition, publication and podcast series, Tree Story takes inspiration from the underground networks, information sharing and mutual support understood to exist within tree communities, and poses the question: what can we learn from trees and the importance of Country? Curated by Charlotte Day and Dr Brian Martin.

Eight Degrees | Bildmuseet, Umeå, Sweden

The exhibition brings together contemporary art exploring our complex relationship with the forest, ranging from ideas of an inviolable intrinsic value to the conception of something to be utilised, such as an economic asset or a space for recreation. What is a forest? And what pressing questions about it are relevant here and now?

Through photography, film, sculpture, drawing, textiles, sound, and installations, the artists invite us to reflect on the forest, observed and depicted from various perspectives and with diverse experiences. Their works provoke questions about tradition and future, forestry practices, land conflicts, biological diversity, and the forest as a sacred space.

The exhibition title Eight Degrees references Jörgen Stenberg’s eponymous poem.

With works by Matti Aikio, Gerd Aurell & Micael Norberg, Malin Arnell & Åsa Elzén, Toms Kokins, Norrakollektivet, Elia Nurvista, Edith Marie Pasquier, Jörgen Stenberg, and Lena Ylipää.
