LAGARDE Antonin - Project Phoenix :: 2017 - Chamblay (France) - Back to the trees


Project Phoenix

Installation by Antonin Lagarde (France)

presented on 1st July 2017 at Chamblay (France)

Antonin Lagarde’s piece could be called “Return to Sender”, these burned woods which are reborn, like Tannhäuser’s staff, seem to retrace their steps, greeting their origins “from the time when they were green”. However, the metaphorical reading has a tragic contemporary counterpart: charred trunks rise up in accusation against the reckless people who are directly or indirectly responsible for the huge conflagrations which devastate the globe’s forests.
