The Winter Tree

6 July – 23 August 2020

City Space, Winchester Discovery Centre

Jewry Street, Winchester, SO23 8SB



‘To step into the darkness of an Andrew Carnie installation is to be effortlessly

transported into a world that is both strangely phantasmagorical and comfortingly

familiar. It is a place where one cannot help but be immersed amid slow, cycling

revelations of the intricate structures that are normally hidden deep within our bodies’

Marius Kwint, Reader in Visual Culture at the University of Portsmouth


The Winter Tree features the new ambitious large scale synchronized digital video

work Here There and Everywhere by the Winchester based artist Andrew Carnie.

The central theme of the work concerns the internal and external, concentrating upon

the tree like biological forms inside us and the trees outside us. The immersive work

lasts twenty minutes and takes the form of projected branching forms onto

translucent screens, exploring ideas of how the dendritic form in our bodies’ the

neuron, reflects, mirrors, the branching forms in nature around us. Also included in

the show is a series of further dendritic works. These drawings and paintings have

been produced by Carnie over the last fifteen years. The new video work was

inspired by reviewing and considering recent scientific developments in neurology

and develops and extends upon Carnie’s highly regarded work Magic Forest which

toured the world after its first showing at the Science Museum London in 2002.
