A critical conversation around the work of artist Agnes Denes.
Forest Dreams invites you into a critical conversation around the work of Agnes Denes through two intriguing projects from the artist’s oeuvre; Tree Mountain outside Helsinki in Finland and Forest for Australia in Altona, Melbourne. Together we will explore the universal concepts Denes sought to express through seminal works including Wheatfield in New York; ‘[the] intrusion into the citadel, a confrontation of high civilization… [but[ also Shangri-la, a small paradise, one’s childhood, a hot summer afternoon in the country, peace… simple pleasures’. The conversation will foreground the artists’ intentions and relationships between environmental art and contemporary landscape conditions.
