For his outdoor exhibition at Centro de Cultura Contemporánea Condeduque in Madrid, Carlos Garaicoa collaborated with Factum Arte for the creation of the central piece of the site-specific installation Broken Line of Horizon: a single bronze tree emerged among a group of stumps arranged in grids.

Garaicoa regularly works on establishing a dialogue with the structures of contemporary cities and their relationship with nature. The platanus occidentalis is a common sight in Madrid streets and a recreation was cast at Esfinge Foundry, before being sand-blasted and finished at Factum Arte's workshop.
