Boyesen uses plywood as material for this exhibition with photo-based motives. The images consist of individual pine trees that emphasize the trees form and character which was collected from the forest. Each board provide a sense of being objects as representation of a pine tree. The trees symbolize Norwegian forest that is actively used in paper production.

Boyesen ́s art is based on one childhood memory of a rural refuge that no longer exists. The work represents her unforgettable memory of nature that is lost, but also the general taxation in Norway. The works is of authentic paper waste, combined with texts or proverbs, in installation. Hanna Boyesen also re- cycles different types of wastepaper that is cast in different sculptural forms. By doing so, she is commited to preserving nature and highlight what is often forgotten in our daily lives.
