Kala Pani Trojan Horse calls attention to the thousands of
Eucalyptus trees that were removed from the Australian
landscape and transported across the Kala Pani (Indian Ocean)
in the 19th century to India in a bid to ‘domesticate’ the Indian
and the Australian landscapes. In this sculptural installation the
emblematic figure of the Black Horse symbolises this crossing of
borders, connecting the removal of forests across continents
resulting in the devastation of ancient ecological systems.
