Miško statulos
analog photography series | 2020

Woodstatues (liet. Miško statulos) is Andrej Polukord's photography/performance project which explores and documents the tree trunks left behind by loggers in landscapes once covered by old-growth forests. To the artist, these stumps evoke pedestals for the monuments often placed in empty city squares. Here in the woods, however, they form a monument to anti-ecology. They appear as hermetic witnesses to a policy of quick money-making through the deforestation of thousands of acres by the logging industry. Photographs were taken on medium format film by Lina Margaitytė and Marius Krivičius.
