The new textile work, suspended near the entrance inside the exhibition space, combines embroidery with photographs of human forms, animals, and plants.
The image of the alpine path was taken by the artist herself: it represents the tree line where vegetation changes. The shrubs recall Melsheimer's interest in topiary trees, formed by human intervention, but here are found in nature, shaped by the ecological conditions. Juxtaposed with this image of a natural environment, an urban landscape dominated by large legs covered in a textile that at the feet ends in root-like protrusions evokes the encroachment of natural forms into city life.
