EN / CZ THE TALE OF THE TREE
Prague 2007/2008
A spontaneous project that started in autumn of 2007, the mummification of a fallen tree in the small woods in Krejcárek, which evolved into a natural cycle resembling a ritualistic funeral. It climaxed with the burning of a funeral pyre during the celebration of Beltine and the scattering of the ashes on the spot, where the tree originally grew. An intervention from the Prague department of forest administration played a major role in project, I have made use of it to push to whole project further. The documentation and the body of the tree became part of the exhibition project „Pod čarou“ taking place in Hall C in 2008.
