During my visit to the Gothenburg Green World 2016, I found this wonderful work by Will Beckers at the Gunnebo Castle. The sign next to art-work states the following:
"For Nature, everything is a memory. The movement starts on the ground, winds around the old oak's trunk and rears into the sky. Heaven and earth meet. In this way, the installation is a tribute to the centuries-old trees, which stand as living connecting links to history."
When walking up to the Gunnebo Castle, I was immediately attracted to this art-work, and I went straight up the little hill to have a closer look. Will Beckers is a great artist known for his use of willow. He is often referred to as the willow-man, and he has created many land-art with willow around the world.
A visit to his website is surely worth it. It contains many pictures of his work.
I use willow regularly in my work, but I forgot all about this installation. It was then that I realised that it must have been the creative use of willow by Will Beckers which triggered the attraction to his work.
