Anna Renström

Alliansring, 2000

”That barbed wire and washing lines have been tied onto trees has always been a matter of course. When I then wanted to show the feeling of being held and stuck at the same time, the image of the surrounding circle round a growing tree trunk came up. The shape and the meaning of an eternity ring strengthens the image of loves firm grip on the human.”
