TABITHA JUSSA & JOHN DAVIES – CAN’T SEE THE WOOD FOR THE TREES

6 June - 4 July 2019

POP-UP EXHIBITION: VICTORIA GALLERY & MUSEUM, UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL

 

We all love the romantic vision of a majestic tree and the idea that this silent sentinel has born witness to multiple generations across its long life. What events occurred during each annual ring of growth?  Which years and periods were significant and where do we fit into this? What is the symbolic role of the tree within our culture?

 

Today we seemingly find ourselves having to fight in order to protect our ancient and mature trees from the destructive processes of twenty first century living.

 

Since the recession, Liverpool has had a succession of green spaces that have been or continue to be under threat from private property developers or regeneration: – Sefton Park Meadows; Calderstone Park; Allerton Priory green space; Woolton Manor green space; Rimrose Valley; Oglet Shore green belt; and Bixteth Street Gardens.

 

This exhibition is a visual exploration of trees in the urban environment through the prism of contemporary scientific understanding and the symbolic significance of trees to people through history to raise issues that are important to our futures.

 

John’s interest is in the public amenity value of trees within urban green space, exploring issues of biodiversity, air pollution, climate change.

 

Tabitha’s interest is in undervalued public space, at risk of becoming valued private space. Her research has led her to the connectedness of trees and their mythical, medicinal and spiritual value.

 

Collaborators

Dr Andrew Hacket-Pain – Lecturer in Biogeography and Ecology in the Department of Geography and Planning in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Liverpool specialising in the fields of dendrochronology and masting.

Dr Morag Rose – Lecturer in Geography and Planning in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Liverpool specialising in the fields of
psychogeography, urban spaces, regeneration and community activism. Morag is also a practicing walking artist.

Dr Jon Power – Lecturer in Biomedical Sciences, Chester Medical School, University of Chester. Specialisms include:- histology, microscopy, skeletal biology / osteoporosis research, parasitology.
