95cm above the ground / 2015 / wall paint on tree trunk 

In order to comment on the way objects, transform into artworks when placed in an exhibition space, the tree’s natural bark is painted ultramarine blue, altering its natural substance and color. In other words, the trunk becomes the medium which is used to express the metaphor that exists, through the violent act of “breaking” the walls of the exhibition space, on the disintegration of the institutions of art.
