Contrappunto

Contrappunto at Ming Studios, Boise Idaho, USA 2016.
A site-specific installation with burned trees from the Pioneer Fire of 2016 in Idaho.
Burned tree trunks, metal connections, fire gan, paint, artificial fog.

In Contrappunto (Counterpoint), Licari addresses the rapid and tempest after effects of forest fires with a life size, site specific installation portraying the devastation of a burnt forest contrasted by the ready-made confines of the gallery setting. Taken from the forests of Idaho, Licari’s charred forest of trees conjures contemplation of current events by placing visitors within a situation that is at once natural and imitation, beautiful and confronting.

This project was made possible with the support of CBK Rotterdam and the Boise City Department of Arts & History.
