Between The Trees

Abby Poulson

Between the Trees is a site specific response to Llyn Llech Owain, a lake upon a hill in West Wales that was mythically formed by the hand of Owain Lawgoch when he once forgot to carefully replace the stone slab which held back a supply of water. A torrent of water poured down the hill, and a lake was formed.

When the pandemic hit, like many, Abby was forced to relocate back to her childhood home. The lake between the trees became a regenerated space for play, imagination and escapism.
