Hammer Bakker is a hill island in northeast of Aalborg, Denmark, which has undergone extensive environmental intervention since the 19th Century, whereby a significant afforestation drive took place. In 2018 a nature restoration project was launched, with the acquisition of several properties and transforming conifer plantations into a cohesive mosaic of deciduous forest, heaths, pastures and grazing landscapes.
In 2021 I was invited alongside co-founder of FERAL Partnerships and architectural designer James Powell to attend a residency at Galleri Hammer Bakker, and produce a public artwork on the grounds. During our visit we met with the local community and discussed the future of the forest, using our sculptures, photography and sketches to initiate discussions around landscape, common space and its management.
