Fairy rings inspire this work. These centuries-old natural phenomena steeped in legends and tales – the work of covens of witches dancing during rituals – are actually the work of subterranean mushrooms. The mycelia, i.e. roots, of species such as the Macro Mushroom (Agaricus crocodilinus) expand outwards as a circle, slipping into a constant process of birth, death, decomposition, and rebirth. The work uses the area’s natural elements – mushrooms, nature’s cycle – as storytelling elements, complemented by centuries-old legends which take centre stage in this area.

The work is realized in collaboration with RGP Balls – Technical support
