Pierre Huyghe, Biennale Sydney 2008

Dear readers,
Thanks for your patience and please pardon me for not blogging for the past couple of weeks.
In the meantime, several people have contacted me with their art events. One such event is listed below.
This took place July 9th, so it already happened, yet you may be interested to read about it.
"Sydney, Australia – The Biennale of Sydney has today unveiled one of its major projects – A Forest of Lines – a 24-hour installation by acclaimed French artist Pierre Huyghe. The artist has transformed the iconic Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House into a living forest with around 1000 trees. Visitors are able to enter the installation and meander through aided by headlights, becoming part of the living art work. The music for the project has been written by Laura Marling and is performed by local musicians.
