BioEuropeForests; Between the trees by Ellie Davies

Ellie Davies (Born 1976) lives in London and works in the woods and forests of the UK. Her gained her MA in Photography from London College of Communication in 2008.

I have  been working in UK forests for the past seven years, making work which explores the complex interrelationship between the landscape and the individual. 

Our understanding of landscape can be seen as a construction in which layers of meaning that reflect our own cultural preoccupations and anxieties obscure the reality of the land, veiling it, and transforming the natural world into an idealisation. UK forests have been shaped by human processes over thousands of years and include ancient woodlands, timber forestry, wildlife reserves and protected Areas of Outstanding Natural.  As such, the forest represents the confluence of nature, culture, and human activity.  Forests are potent symbols in folklore, fairy tale and myth, places of enchantment and magic as well as of danger and mystery.  In more recent history they have come to be associated with psychological states relating to the unconscious.

Against this backdrop mywork explores the ways in which identity is formed by the landscapes we live and grow up in. Making a variety of temporary and non-invasive interventions in the forest, my work places the viewer in the gap between reality and fantasy, creating spaces which encourage the viewer to re-evaluate the way in which their own relationship with the landscape is formed, the extent to which it is a product of cultural heritage or personal experience, and how this has been instrumental in their own identity.
