Whalley, Sean (2005)
Sean Whalley's Second Story is not just a meditation on trees. It tackles the problem of Western social and cultural development in relation to the natural environment. The installation comprises an artificial forest with similarities, in configuration and scale, to a naturally treed site. It invites consideration of our relationship to renewable resources. This woodland is constructed completely from the discards of society. Whalley's transformation of refuse into metaphorical potential habitat invites us to reconsider how we think about the homes we inhabit. This publication in folder format documents the exhibition at Dunlop Art Gallery November 6 to December 28, 2004.
