Hollow at Royal Fort Gardens

About

Hollow is a permanent public artwork created by artist Katie Paterson with architects Zeller & Moye and in association with members of the School of Biological Sciences for Bristols Royal Fort Gardens. Hollow houses a miniature forest of all the worlds trees.

Inside Hollow, you will discover 10,000 unique tree species, which have been gathered by the artist from almost every country on the planet. Under your feet lie fossils, which span 390 million years, and above you thousands of unique tree samples connect across time and space, each with their own story to tell.

The relationship these trees have had with the environment, its water and its sunlight, and the plants, animals and fungi that lived with them, can be traced in the woods surfaces, once the living, growing part of the tree: from the Indian Banyan Tree, under which the Buddha achieved enlightenment; to the Japanese Gingko tree in Hiroshima (a tree that witnessed and survived one of the darkest moments of human history); to common, but no less remarkable trees. Entering Hollow is to enter the history of our planet.
