"Skov", Pauline Fransson
November 1-9 2017
The exhibition takes inspiration from the word ”Skov”, which is the name for forest in Danish but also the name for a inflammatory disease state in Swedish.
As we approach the tree of the forest, we notice the diseases and the conditions. In doing so, something else takes form inside the mind and spirit of a human, a sense of similarity and recognition. As the bark of the tree is covered in lichen, moss and fungus, the skin of the human is made frail by eczema.
From both the bark and the skin, you imagine something else underneath, something that either grows, or rots.
