THE COMMON LIVERWORT

Panchronic plants, sodium lamps, terrariums, crickets, sound device, 2018

prev | next




Located in the chapel of Guelhouit (etymologically «in the woods»), this installation is in direct connection with its environment. Inspired by its vault depicting a painted sky and granite soil, a sample of nature is represented, the one that is familiar to us but which nevertheless remains fascinating. A miniature panchronic forest is restored in the chapel, a small garden of origins where the plant species that compose it have not evolved since their fossil traces dating from the Jurassic. There are also two terrariums containing crickets. Their morphology having changed very little since that time, their songs remain unchanged placing these stridulations among the few sonorous traces that can reach us from this distant time. This work invites us to re-examine this environment where different temporalities mix, interspersed with mineral, vegetable, animal and human scales in a place of contemplation dating from the 17th century.
