ARTWORK STATEMENT


You calling me old?
I’m 200 years young
My life was cut short
I was meant to live tall
My journey was to end at 1000 years old
Slashed and discarded from my grove;
My ancestral home
I was left to burn

1815-2015
Yellow Cedar
Woss Forest, BC

ABOUT THE ARTIST


Mimi Lamarre is a creative producer from Salt Spring Island with a strong background in the arts and music industry. Mimi Lamarre has a knack for turning ideas into concrete visions. The BC wilderness and ocean have captivated and inspired Mimi.

This project started with a found discarded piece of wood in a burn pile in a deforestation area. It focuses on the loss of ancient forests and the ongoing debate on the definition of the age of a tree to be considered old growth.
