Xylothek

"... Of the 68 volumes prepared by Karel of Hinterlagen around 1825, each documents one type of wood. The panels are made of the wood of the relevant tree, the spine with the title in Latin and German is made of bark with lichen, inside there are roots, branches, leaves, flowers, fruits, sections of branches, and pests. Beyond the dendrology library, on the back wall of the passage, there is an illusive perspective painting by Achbauer, from 1825, which extends the corridor by means of optical illusion.

Xylotheks have also provided inspiration for artists. In 2012, Mark Dion created a new display for the 18th century Schildbach Xylotheque in Kassel, Germany, which encompasses 530 wooden volumes of different tree and shrub species. (The piece is on permanent display at Kassel’s Natural History Museum.) As part of the 2012 installment of documenta(13), Dion made new oak hexagonal chambers that place each sample in its continent of origin, and introduced his own additions.
