Rotterdam-based sicilian artist Giuseppe Licari presents a network of tree roots hanging from the ceiling like foreign, organic chandeliers. 

His site-specific installation titled ‘humus’ -  which refers to the soil layer that is essential for the growth of trees and plants - features the extended.

 Prickly roots of trees affixed to the top of a constructed ceiling, transforming the room into a sort of underground lair.

The work articulates a world where visitors are able to get an exclusive peek at a hidden world beneath a park or forest.

The dead trees are presenting with their roots, the condition of the soil in which they have grown in their urban environment. 
The relationship between humankind and nature, growth and decay are central themes in licari’s work, which resonates with an echo of arte povera.
