Anna Skladmann: The Ghost of Immortal Beauty

‘The Ghost Of Immortal Beauty’

An Ecological Inquiry


It is buried in the soil deep in the dark where the truth lies, quietly observing us. A forest of Silent Witnesses that root themselves in nature; a nature defined by the rhythm of the seasons. Somewhere, we stumble upon a web of myths and secrets, an enchanted territory divided by two poles— beauty and fear. Fairy-tales grown from the ground, and beside them, traces of quotidian life in the display of natural phenomena.
