Chris Booth: "Wurrungwuri", 2008 - 2011. Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney, Australia

 

The giant waveform, echoing the geomorphology of the landscape, is constructed from 300+ tonnes of sandstone incorporating gaps of many sizes to serve as wildlife habitat. Blocks of wood and adobe within the wave offer living quarters for Solitary Bees. The wave troughs are planted with local flora which will support insects and birds.

 

The site-specific creation summons the geological and cultural energy of this cove where the local Cadi people and European convict colony first encountered one another. A giant half-ellipse woven from 22,000 quartz stones recalls a shield of the Cadigal, thought to have been traded in 1788 with the new 'boat people'. Ochre coloured rocks from the Nepean River replicate the design on the shield, now in the Australian Museum. The shield is one of the few surviving Aboriginal artifacts from early settlement (many were lost in the Garden Palace Fire). Its remembrance here was created in close consultation with Allen Madden, Cadigal elder. In addition he named the land art work. The hollow quartz stone form is also created as habitat for endangered micro-bats.

Chris Booth: "Echo of the Veluwe"

Chris Booth: "Echo of the Veluwe" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Chris Booth: "Echo of the Veluwe", Sculpture Park Kröller Müller, Netherlands, 2005

 

The artist Chris Booth from New Zealand has made this sculpture from 310 boulders. In request of the artist, an extensive geological research was carried out on the used boulders.

"The undulating shape of the boulders moves through and between the trees, like the wind moving the sand, like the glaciers of old that shaped the land and brought the boulders from Scandinavia. The shape refers to the waves of the sand dunes, characteristic of the area around the museum, and to the waves of the nearby ponds. The egg-shape of the work was inspired by the surface of one of the ponds. The work of art emphasizes the importance of water, that has become scarce on the Veluwe because of overuse. The spiral shape of the boulders was inspired by the currents of the wind, that changed the shape of the landscape over thousands of years. The work of art also deals with the descructive influence of man on the vulnerable land, by centuries of agriculture and other forms of overuse." Ch. B.

Wela (Elisabeth Wierzbicka), an enviromental installation: "Crown of Thorns", 2011, Paris International Golf Club, Baillet-en-France

Crown of thorns, borrowed from Christianity, Wela symbolizes both the vivacity of nature, considering it as a creation much more complex than can be that of an artist, and the image of a nature suffering, what we need to defend and protect.

Andy Goldsworthy: Icespiral / Icestar

The work of Scottish environmental/land artist Andy Goldsworthy takes our breath away. Nature will always produce the most amazing formations, but Goldsworthy's simple manipulation of natural materials, often in their immediate landscape, is stunning. He then leaves these works to absorb back into the land -- a distinct comment on man-made vs. the natural ebb and flow of life

Angela Palmer: "Ghost forest Art Project"

Angela Palmer: "Ghost forest Art Project" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Ghost Forest is an original and ambitious project by Angela Palmer that seeks to raise public awareness of the connections between deforestation and climate change. It involves taking a series of 10 rainforest tree stumps, most with their buttress roots still attached, from a regulated, commercially logged tropical rainforest in Ghana.
The tree stumps was presented as a “ghost forest” firstly in Trafalgar Square in London, and then in Copenhagen to coincide with the UN Cop15 Climate Change Conference.

Ghost Forest Art Installation - Trafalgar Square, London, U.K. 16-22 November 2009 and Ghost Forest Art Installation - Thorvaldsens Plads, Copenhagen, Denmark 7-18 December 2009
