SOIL – Humain / Non-Humain? Grant IMéRA 2016-17 – mix-media Art&Pedology&Anthropology
Research in progress
Soil as living organism. Human / Non-human dialogue? Anthropocene Era. Research and test phase. Visual Art, Sciences of Ecology and Environment, Social and Cultural Anthropology
My main starting questions are about how to consider the soil as a living artefact, and, how the notion of non-human being can bring new ways to engage with the soil ? I can add, to give a larger picture of my practice, that the question of landscape – i.e. westerner meaning and perceptive schema – is always in the background of my artistic approach.
First steps of the research: several interventions as talks/dialogues and performances.
