The Identity of Trees

March 7th, 2013 § 0 comments

workshop_id_kl In the framework of Bessst, a silence program organised by Vlaamse Gemeenschapscommissie, artists Heath Bunting (irational), Rasa Alksnyte (FoAM) and An Mertens (Constant) welcome fifteen people to participate in a 2-days workshop to meet some particular trees and discuss their identities in such a way you’ll never forget them anymore.

Through questions we deal with daily, we look into the integration of trees as arborescal personas in our society, lives and language.
What’s your name? Where do you live? When were you born? Where do you come from? How long have you been living here? How did you arrive here? What is your mother tongue? Do you have any persons in charge? Are you married? Living together with a partner, family or friends?
We formulate possible answers, invent suitful concepts and words and think through the consequences of integrating such persona in our lives and societies. By the end of the workshop we will have gathered some exciting new stories. By sharing these during Erfgoeddag on 21-4 and Zoniënmars on 28-4 we will have save the first trees out of their anonimity.
