Maryanne Coutts: A year of tree

Opening Thursday 29 August

Open campus hoursĀ 

From the 27th June 2018 and the 26th June 2019, I took weekly Polaroids of the tree that stands between building 25 and the chapel. To me, this tree feels like the heart of the school. Just outside the inner circle of the campus that is the chapel, this is a central gathering place, a place for collecting the sun or enduring the wind, watching and waiting. By recording the changes of this tree over the space of a year, this work aims to encapsulate a sense of endurance in that change. It is presented here as both the sequence of original Polaroids and a spatial layering of those times.
