Miler Lagos in ‘Forest Through the trees’ at the Laumeier Sculpture Park, St Louis, USA

Sep 27 - Oct 11, 2022

Colombian artist Miler Lagos is part of the group exhibition 'Forest Through The Trees', at the Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Curated by Dana Turkovic, this exhibition reclects on landscapes and trees, and includes Miler Lagos work 'Rings of Time'.

Anillos del tiempo (Rings of time) is a series of collages created from 400 copies of the same page of a Newspaper. The origin of this piece lies in the rings that can be seen inside the trunk of a tree once it is cut. These not only reveal the age of the tree, but also provide information about the environmental conditions that affected the trunk through time. The arrangement of the pages evokes the concentric circles that time engraves in trees, turning them into archives of information and witnesses of memory.
