Crying Pine Tree

Crying Pine Tree is a novel-in-the-making about an ”autoimmune tree”. The work departs from bodily experiences of living with an autoimmune condition – multiple sclerosis – told through the analogous condition of a genetically engineered pine. The novel is written up by fiction writer Katie Kitamura, a chapter at a time, responding to situations and scenarios staged by the artists.

A prologue to the upcoming novel was read at an event at Triple Canopy in January 2020.
