Giuseppe Licari: Humus, 2012, Secret Gardens, Tent Rotterdam, A site-specific installation with trees' roots, ceiling construction, trees' roots, halogen lamps.
Sicilian artist Guiseppe Licari has done the unthinkable. What you see are tree trunks emerging from the ceiling of a gallery space. The idea of “Humus” was to symbiotically combine the growth of trees and lighting to create foreign, organic chandeliers. The work articulates a world where visitors are able to get an exclusive peek at a hidden world beneath a park or forest.
