Humus, Giuseppe Licari's installation with trees roots

The stunning installation by Rotterdam-based Sicilian artist Giuseppe Licari presents a fanciful network of tree roots, which seem to transform TENT’s central space into a mysterious underworld: the roots project downwards from the ceiling as if the trees are growing above it. The title of the work, ‘Humus’, refers to the soil layer that is essential for the growth of trees and plants, but which is indeed absent here. The relationship between humankind and nature, growth and decay are central themes in Licari’s work, which resonates with an echo of Arte Povera.
