“The Life Of A Dead Tree” currently in residence at MOCA Toronto ... a hugely ambitious, original and memorable 100 yr old dissected White Ash in installation. An audience can wander around, interpret, reminisce and feel its still thriving skin...16 + tons of it ... very moving....thank you artist Mark Dion @markdionstudio and @mocatoronto for this provocation🙏 _________________________________ #markdionstudio

On This Day in Art History

Olympic Sculpture Park

On February 8, 1996, a giant Western Hemlock tree fell in an old growth forest just outside of Seattle. The tree was dead, in the traditional sense, but it housed an ecosystem that was teeming with life. Eventually it was transported by a team led by artist Mark Dion to a purpose-built greenhouse in Olympic Sculpture Park for a permanent installation entitled Neukom Vivarium.⁣ ⁣ On this day in 2006, it opened its doors to the public. Today the work is operated by volunteers and visitors can go and see the tree, as well as the many plants and critters that continue to call it home (illustrated tiles along the installation’s base provide a handy guide to the flora and fauna you might find within). While the work may read like a sanctuary for its many inhabitants, Dion had a darker vision in mind. “In some ways,” he has said, “this project is an abomination.” He describes the massive technological apparatus acting as the ecosystem’s “life support” as a reminder to viewers that “despite all of our technology and money, when we destroy a natural system, it’s virtually impossible to get it back.⁣ ⁣ studio ⁣ ⁣ Photo by Evan Chakroff
