Crown Shyness - London, Sept 10/Oct 8, 2021

City:

Eligibility:

Sometimes trees can be a little too respectful of one another’s boundaries, sometimes they just stop growing when they get too close. This phenomenon is called Crown Shyness — when the tops of individual trees avoid touching in the forest canopy, creating separation lines and boundaries in the sky. Researchers found that during calm conditions the branches interlocked, ‘like loosely fitting pieces of a jigsaw puzzle’. When the wind gusts the branches, they can often touch and become intertwined.

#callforartists: we encourage artists to intertwine their voices with sustainability, for this great opportunity of being showcased at the halley (Haggerston, London). A B-Corp accelerating the global culture shift to redefine success in business, in a more inclusive and sustainable economy caring about the environment.

Exhibition dates - 10 Sept / 8 Oct, 2021

All medium accepted: we would like artists to focus on sustainability and the intertwining of different materials and styles. We also accept performer applications for the opening event. All selected artists must be SKT Spaces members - Enthusiasts or Professionals. Our members contributions exists to fund the project's activities. All proceeds go directly back towards supporting the artists, organising events and exhibitions, planting trees, as well as education and outreach programs.

For each membership and each participant in the show, we will plant a tree with @TreeSisters
