WILLOWS - land art  in the garden of Dordrecht Municipal Museum.
Salix Alba - 24 pollarded willows and white latex - Ø400 cm - Dordrecht Municipal Museum NL - "round" - 1972

During the first years a mysterious person was intermittently weaving the branches together to create a kind of shelter I suppose. As this was not my intention I would spend time undoing those interventions.

Often I see environmental works with trees that have been planted at an angle to the horizontal plane of the ground; but plants tend to grow straight upwards and that effect will eventually be lost. Nature will win in the end; that's why I planned to pollard my willows regularly.
