A huge cherry tree fills the interior of an Edinburgh gallery as part of an anarchic new show.
Standing more than eight metres tall and scraping the ceiling of the University’s Talbot Rice Gallery, the tree is the centrepiece of acts of display, a new exhibition from Glasgow-based artist Rob Kennedy.
The tree was sourced from Edinburgh’s Inverleith Park. Over the course of the show the leaves will fall and litter the indoor space.
The work is a response to two paintings owned by the University, one by David Teniers called Peasants Playing Bowls and a second anonymous copy which is missing a tree and a male figure from the original.
