In Daniel Lie’s artistic practice, time and eco-systems play a key role. The artist creates installations in which organic living elements transform themselves, thereby performing their own temporality and their own intentions. For Sculpture Garden, Lie has created an in situ installation hanging from monumental sequoias. The artist approaches those other-than-human beings, aged over two centuries, with respect and draws inspiration from their semi-circular arrangement, creating a form of sanctuary in which visitors are invited to stay for a while. As its title Them indicates, the artist’s free-floating installation disrupts the structures of binary thinking, such as past and present, human and non-human, exhibition and introspection.
