The Forest in Themselves Have For a Long Time Been Spoken of as a Multitude of Living Creatures
In her artistic practice Fia Linnéa Emelie Doepel looks into ideas and concepts towards nature where different environmental issues work as starting points. Doepel uses notions such as animism, feminist post-humanism and ecology as modes of investigation and operate within these frameworks.
The work The Forest in Themselves Have for a Long Time Been Spoken of as a Multitude of Living Creatures is a collaboration between a clearcut located on the southern coast in Finland and the artist. In this work Doepel investigates what happens to the communication between individuals within the ecosystem when the trees are cut down. The process is based on interaction, and through working-with the ground and its critters, the notion of animism is evoked.
