Pine’s Eye explores what it means to be human in times of ecological change. Taking its name from 'Pinocchio' (the Italian for ‘pine eye’ or ‘kernel’) it is necessarily tricky and mischievous as it weaves a journey between subjectivities and the natural world. Rejecting progress, purity, standardisation and originality, it reframes modernism as a pagan pursuit, asks flowers to bear witness to global treaties and ushers in indigenous tales of the forest. Through masks and mannequins, magic, science fiction and ritual, Pine’s Eye looks at the human form entangled in nature.
