40.000 TREES PROJECT (2008)

The 40.000 Trees Project is a site specific performance that will take place in Sri Lanka starting on Decemeber 26 2008, four years after the tsunami. It also represents a reforestation intervention in one of the areas worst devastated by the tsunami. This site-specific project represents the culmination of a series of works that I have been developing around this profound inspiration and will involve the planting of 40.000 trees along the coasts of Sri Lanka as a sign of remembrance for the 40.000 lives lost on the island during the natural disaster. While helping the reforestation of the affected areas, the trees will also constitute a small natural barrier against the future rage of Nature.
