“Radiata Pine (Pinus radiata) is one of the most widely planted trees in forestry plantations globally, yet is listed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as endangered. This seemingly paradoxical status highlights the strange relationship that these trees have with human beings, existing between categories of nature and culture, between built and wild environments.
In Radiata, three emerging artists have created a document exploring this relationship through the photographic image. The narrative that emerges is complex and multifaceted, drawing out questions about how we, as humans, perceive and relate to non-human species in the world.”
