Every day, all day Friday 17 April to Saturday 30 May

The Forest Within Me is a homage to the tree. It is about the spiritual dimensions that deal wistfully in the growth of its biodiversity.

The forest is a superior life force to me, I feel part of the forest, without the forest there would be no means to draw breath.

The works in this exhibition, are no longer existing or endangered trees to be revealed as forest monuments, which I have immortalised with my camera over extensive periods of travel through experiencing the many and varied forests of the world.

For more than 2 decades I have documented the forests in New Zealand, America, Asia, Australia and Europe, that I was deeply impressed by 20 years ago and now can no longer see. This is when I realised that these earlier series of photographs are monuments of memories from the forest that no longer exists today, that have been irretrievably lost, cleared, or burnt, burnt like an island.

Biography:

Anja Meixner was born in Germany (1966) and lives between Würzburg Germany and Sydney Australia. She discovered media film and photography at Cologne University, while completing a Masters course in Anthropology. Meixner is convinced that you can come closer to conclusions about a foreign culture or rather the human condition through methodologies in the arts.
