Forest Tunes, The Library, 1995-2008 by Shai Zakai

Can remember when I was reading this.  Think it was 9 months ago when I was trying to persuade Rozelle Maclaurin to show this important work.  Located as they are in parkland, it seemed to me an interesting and worthwhile exhibition around which a stimulating series of events could have been organised, a sort of arborischool, with speakers like Richard Mabey, David Haley and Thomas Pakenham, as well as local rangers, academics from Auchincruive, etc.

I think its at the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World this autumn.

What Art have I seen?

Imaging the Forest at the British Museum

Dinabandhu Mahapatra’s Trees of Orissa.  A painting on silk representing all the trees of the region of Orissa.  Some are very much icons, others are more representational.  This work, made in the early 1980s, was as I understood it part of a response by a particular patron to the loss of traditional crafts.  It is a response to the 12th Century poem, the Gitagovinda, which tells the story of Krishna and Radha.  The forest is a place where the social rules are more relaxed and Krishna can carry on with his favourite female cowherds.
