Turner Prize nominee in 2003, Anya Gallacio, combines nature and decay within her work. There is something so captivating about watching the fruits on the tree decay and fall as it stands in the clinical cuboid of the gallery space. The tree seems to have a life of its own as the room surrounding it is comparitvely lifeless and infinite.
The work of Anya, as well as the the other images of trees in this chapter, have inspired the set design for Alpines. In addition, the passing of time, decay and movement of the seasons will play a part in our performances in the future.
