AN IMAGE THAT WAS A PLANT
With ‘An image that was a tree’, Spincemaille searches trees and plants that can tell
a story. Part of the tree is trimmed and a photo is taken from the material. The photo is then processed into a picture using only the raw materials that the trimmed material offers us: from branches we make paper and from the leaves and fruits we make ink. The photo of the tree is then printed with the pigment of the tree on paper made from this tree.
A Tree is a production of Werktank, ZKM (Karlsruhe), KU Leuven and Atelier Ief Spincemaille and will premiere in 2022.
