Olive Tree Planting, 2009, Arctic
I brought two olive tree seedlings from Croatia on the boat. The intention was to freeze one, make a hole in the glacier and leave it there until the glacier melts due to global warming. I was not allowed to do so because of the law that forbids leaving ‘strange biological organisms’ on the island. As a consequence, I decided to take the ice cube with the seedling, place it on a beach covered with thin layer of snow and destroy it with a piece of coal – video documentation – Peace.
Olive Tree Planting was made during the The Arctic Circle project.
