Treecycle – Angela McMahon and Stuart Leeser

Local artists Angela McMahon and Stuart Leeser have created the art installation at The Hill Station Cafe. With a private view on Friday 29 November 2013 the exhibition closed on Monday 6 January 2014. The private view event runs from 6pm until 9pm, it was open to all, including children, and will have music, a bar and hot food.

Inspired by trees as the breath of the planet and a magnificent feature of Telegraph Hill, Angela and Stuart have recycled cardboard to create TREECYCLE, a large tree installation made specifically for the Hill Station. With branches stretching out across the ceiling creating an immersive experience the work uses a playful approach to celebrate trees and wood as an essential part of life on earth. We use wood every day, often without thinking, as furniture, fuel, paper, books, cardboard and packaging and ancient trees formed the fossil fuels we use to power the modern world. They are also seen as nurturing, mythical or magical. Viewers are invited to write messages on paper leaves that will be attached to the tree. These will be recorded as part of the work. At the end of the show the tree and leaves were recycled.
