Group Exhibition

Among the Trees Hayward Gallery

By turns poetic, adventurous and thought-provoking, this group exhibition explores our relationship with trees and forests.

Whether exploring the way that trees – with lifespans much longer than our own – challenge how we think about time, or revealing how they are intimately entangled with human affairs, these artists enliven and expand our appreciation of these remarkable organisms.

The works include a cinematic portrait of a 30-metre-high spruce tree by Eija-Liisa Ahtila; and photographs of an uprooted, upside-down tree by Robert Smithson, among others.

At a time when the destruction of the world’s forests is accelerating at a record pace, Among the Trees vividly highlights the indispensable role that trees play in our lives and imaginations. 

Participating artists: Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Tacita Dean, William Kentridge, Steve McQueen, Giuseppe Penone, Robert Smithson, Thomas Struth
