ECA crime scene

I found a few christmas trees lying around the streets of Edinburgh, thrown away, unwanted.



I felt sorry for them, as they had been robbed from their habitat, at their childhood (they are small pines!), decorated for a holiday they don’t understand before thrown away as trash. It’s like their meaning of life is to be killed.

It make me wonder about the relationship between us and nature, as the latter has clear been commercialised, objectified and anlienated. Just like the little pine tree, losing its identity and ready to be sold and discaded.



So, long time after Chistmas, I decided to put the tree in the hall way, reminding the audience our consumption and the dramatic relationship between festival and death.
