TREE-LOGY exhibition opened on Friday, February 6th, 2015, and was opened for visitors until February 15th in Kolegiacki ART exibition hall.
The exhibition was organised by the 8th Sculpture Studio of the Faculty of Sculpture and Space Activities of the University of Fine Arts in Poznan. Its custodian was Łukasz Gruszczyński and coordinators were Karolina Leśnik and Kazimierz Raba.
TREE-LOGY exhibition is an interdisciplinary project, a research experiment
whose aim is to escape beyond the territories designated
for art and invoke the tradition of creating chambers of curiosities,
theme amusement parks and science museums.
Works of art, scientific exhibits, texts and artifacts focused on one subject create a surprising narrative,
where artistic originality and everyday life compete for attention,
pointing out to the numerous ways in which the environment communicates with us.
The relationships between particular objects allow us to build and explore new contexts and stories
related to the world of our knowledge, memory and imagination.
Participants of the exhibition:
Wood Technology Institute
Poznan Archeological Museum Genius Loci Archaeological Reserve
Forest Inspectorate of Konstantynowo
University of Fine Arts in Poznan
University of Science and Technology in Bydgoszcz

Presented works and exhibits could be admired not only by sight but also by hearing and taste. Works of human hands intermingle with and at the same time complete the creations of nature. Viewing the objects created by artists and scientists, for whom wood is a raw material for broadly understood research and studies as well as an inspiration for the creative process, the visitors could listen to the sounds of nature or contemplate "The life processes of plants transposed to sound." Tasting Dębowa Polska products, which are made using the strands of oak wood in the technological process to enrich the taste and color of produced alcohols, one could participate in the performance entited "Contributions to dendritic metaphysics" or check the rate of forest felling in the world.
