‘Tree Art’


Designed by the Dutch artist Lepe B.T. Rubingh, this work for the first annual Singapore Biennial at the Asian Civilizations Museum is and Angsana Tree that rains on passers by without warning. Lepe said he ‘discovered’ the trees unique abilities after talking to it for weeks. Here’s a better description, from Lepe himself:

‘after three weeks of talking to an Angsana Tree in Singapore it started raining out of the crone just before the opening of the Singapore Biennale. It is said that the rain of the tree washes away sins, cures diseases and even makes us younger. So we took the test and had a shower last sunday.

This time I could bring the Miracle Team from Berlin with me to Singapore. They worked closely together with local specialists. And then of course there was the help of allround support from Tokyo by Michi ‘KO’ Ogura, who is an outstanding specialist on metaphysical issues.’
