The Hand, the Creatures, the Singing garden
Loris Cecchini
2012 - chromed steel

Just past the water-lily pond, along the path leading toward the northern part of the park, the artist found a clearing in the undergrowth where a large holm-oak grows next to a park bench. The branches extending from the trunk create a sculptural form covered by rough tree bark and cloaked in a dense layer of moss. The branches seem to want to converse with two neighboring trees, a plane and a maple, that have grown together, as if embracing in an eternal promise.
The artist proposed to add a second "skin" to the space's largest holm-oak: hundreds of little chromed steel pieces, which reflect the natural light and the greenery of surrounding nature, become a new tree bark, lightweight and shiny but reactive to the environment around it.
