Sweet oblivion – Nonalignment pact

A root from the tree that the work is based on is cleaved by a gypsum wall. Or is the root pushing through the gypsum? The work is a continuation of a series where the artist is building a relationship between nature and the industrial that is not built on the traditional juxtaposition but instead, on the possibilities set by both to each other and to third parties, in the spirit of political nonalignment. The nonalignment pact refers thus to the political positioning of the 1950s in between the great powers.
