Alan Tod is the embodiment of a forest-artist performed in real life by Julien Isoré from 2014 to 2021 in order to develop the concept of forest-art.
"Hello my name is Alan Tod and I am a forest artist. As an ambassador I am here to make the forest a work of art, as the new monument for our global culture.
From a theoretical point of view, I am a painter of the classical questions in art: I see Art as a polymathic protocol of collaboration between art, science, forest and legislature to create spirit and totality.
Welcome to the new monument, the forest lives where we die.
Forest-Art produces forest considered as sculpture, fertile soils seen as organic installations, Vivarium sculpture seen as mythologic creatures, alive stories as performances, new laws and new rights for forest as direct actions, painting, photography, films and conferences.
Forest-art creates a patrimonial value for wildspaces.
Forest-Art aesthetic opens new state of mind where plant intelligence is challenging our perception of reality, beauty and life. Forest-Art is about transcending the Forest’s message in Art, as much as it is transcending the Art’s message in Forest. Painting a Forest in Forest-Art is planting it, or making a ready-planted forest as a ready-made sculpture. In Forest-Art, we don't talk about ecology, we do it. Forest-art becomes the stimulator of a new culture healing the harms of colonialism, capitalism and patriarchy."
