Massive sculpture covers saplings with plastic bags


This year's non-traditional gallery exhibits at Art Basel Unlimited include Pascale Marthine Tayou's Plastic Tree C.


Artnet has background on the earlier work in the series, like Plastic Tree B, surrounded by plastic buckets with plants.

Tayou has previously exhibited at Galleria Continua, including Arbre à palabres (gathering tree), name for a large tree that forms the center of community life in his native Cameroon. That work incorporates the plastic-tree themes as well.
