The middle room displays a big dark tree with sturdy branches and a series of ceramic apples hanging down on black ropes from one branch. This bronze tree with the title who can I turn to if you turn away is a cast of a tree that Gallaccio found in California, having fallen victim to woodpeckers. The woodpecker’s tracks were used to thread the ropes with apples.
