A Breather is a moving sculpture made out of the remains of a tree which fell over during storm Eunice in Februari 2022. This tree was skinned, hollowed out, dried and put together with a steel skeleton. A linear actuator moves the trunk upside down, making the branches move around their axis. The image represents the movement of the lung, representing what connects the tree to us: air. The sculpture was made in collaboration with artist Gökay Atabek at Stichting De Besturing.
The sculpture will be installed in the foyer of IJsselland Ziekenhuis someday in 2023 (date T.B.A.).
