Over the past three years artist Katie Paterson has developed Hollow, her most ambitious permanent public artwork to date, commissioned by University of Bristol to mark the opening of their new Life Sciences building.

In this time Katie has amassed one of the largest collections of tree species in the world, making Hollow a miniature forest of all the world’s forests. The work, developed in association with the award-winning architects Zeller & Moye, will be opened at Royal Fort Gardens in Bristol on 9 May.

In preparation for the unveiling, you can listen again to Katie Paterson’s Artist Talk, recorded in December 2015 as researchers and students from the University of Bristol’s Life Sciences department organized the collection at Arnolfini. Hear the stories behind the project and gain an insight into the history of the planet through tree species. Includes an introduction by Situations Director Claire Doherty and afterword by Evolutionary Biologist Jon Bridle.
