The Pine in the Park

Arlander Annette

For a year, between January 3rd and December 31st 2022, the artist was pondering and performing for the camera together with a pine tree growing in Kaivopuisto Park in Helsinki. First she repeated two poses and then added a third one; thus three images are from the start inserted into a larger image of the pine tree.
