Bart Van Dijck grew 100 oak trees to hand out to the public. They are part of his performance ‘100 Oaks’, which he did on Sunday 16 May 2021 in the OpenCage.
Each time someone adopts an oak tree, he or she also receives an amulet that Van Dijck made from crushed laughing gas bottles that he found on the street during the lockdown period. In return, the receiver gives a free contribution and signs an adoption contract.
The oak trees can be collected from the gallery during normal opening hours. Number 53 is already waiting for a caring planter.
