About the exhibition
In works in different media, 37 artists explore how trees – with lifespans much longer than our own – challenge how we think about time, and consider how intimately entangled they are with human affairs.

From a monumental sculpture cast from a 2,000-year-old olive tree by Ugo Rondinone, a cinematic portrait of a 30-metre-high spruce tree by Eija-Liisa Ahtila to a vast forest of trees constructed entirely from cardboard by Eva Jospin.

Among the Trees transports us around the world, from Colombian rainforests and remote Japanese islands to olive orchards in Israel and a 9,550-year-old spruce in Sweden.

At a time when the destruction of the world’s forests is accelerating at a record pace, see the natural world through new eyes on a walk through the woods, real and imagined.
