The Christmas Trees Island

Kang, Minsook

Regular price €29,50

This book documents the artist’s quest to save Christmas trees that have been abandoned in the cities of Rotterdam and The Hague, in order to give them a chance to survive beyond the Christmas season as well as to take a critical look at consumerist behaviours: “’The Christmas Tree Project’ is a long journey to save Christmas trees that have been discarded on the streets after Christmas holiday. By instigating simple gestures, I attempt to reveal structures that might underpin the everyday reality of experience. These micropolitical actions can interweave and juxtapose the personal scale of experience and the historical and political scale of collective being as a form of resistance.”
