About this artwork

This work was made by Christine Borland for the 2006 Cove Park Portfolio. It belongs to a series of works originally made during a residency at Glenfiddich Distillery in 2004, which was included in the ‘Anatomy Acts’ exhibition at Edinburgh’s City Art Centre in 2006. Borland has used positive and negative images of a tree whose bark has been infested with a black fungus, common in trees growing near distilleries. She transplanted one contaminated tree to the grounds of Cove Park in Argyll and Bute, where it would be left to return to its natural colour again. Her dual-part image refers to the transformation these trees undergo, but it also resembles an x-ray, revealing Borland’s ongoing fascination with medical imagery.
