Untitled (Fog)
Looped video, 8.30 min, 2011

A mighty spruce tree comes into view, with wisps of fog rising from the undergrowth. It is a sublimely romantic image, with eerie undertones. But soon the construct becomes clear: the forest is a printed image pasted on a wall in the artist's studio, and the fog comes from a smoke machine which gradually fills up the studio.

Shown as part of group shows VIDEOROVER: Season III, NURTUREart, New York (2011) and S.A.G.S. (curated by Lucky PDF), The Woodmill Studios, London (2011) and solo exhibition Becoming the Forest, Le Bon Accueil, Rennes (2015)
