‘Oddly peaceful and reassuring’ Audience member

Become at one with the forest

Cushioned by soil and surrounded by fallen leaves, Woodland by UK artist duo French & Mottershead is a meditative and deeply affecting audio work that creates a self-portrait of the body after death.   

Using spoken narrative with insights from forensic anthropologists and ecologists, Woodland is a gentle confrontation of mortality and an invitation to imagine our body’s return to the soil over an epic length of time.
