Walking across the lawn, away from the palace and towards the edge of the forest, you approach a small circle of trees quite close to the forest entrance. ‘Resting Place’ lies in the centre of these trees. It is a large hollow form of woven willow, resting on a circular bed of split bamboo shavings. The simplicity of the work allows the mind to roam free, and gives the impression of a nest, a coracle or a basket, that has been moving through space and come to rest on the earth on its circular bed. My aim in this work was to make a precise response to the site, and reveal its essential nature.
