Bonneval will present her collaborative projects across art and science around the topic of trees. She will discuss Dendromacy, a series of workshops, installations, and films developed with teams of ecophysiologists that considers tree intimacies and rethinking trees; Listen to the soil, a collaboration with fungi specialists, microbiologists, bioacousticians, and soil scientists from Paris, Berlin, and Ithaca that is based on recent research on linkages between sound, soil, plant root behavior, and fungi; and Vertimus, or, how to move with plants, a collaborative project with Eric Badel from PIAF, INRA Lab in Clermont Ferrand, France.
Art and science provide fertile ground for research, teaching
By Daniel Aloi
Unveil the green with more than 30 international artists.
Communicate with plants, update their relationship with witchcraft knowledge, invent eco-technical systems where humans become superfluous, dance with phytoplankton, plant herbicide resistance gardens or plant virtual trees to compensate for the CO2 footprint of our digital life, perform the sick body with transplants of organs or molecules, or materialize hyper-toxic green pigments, far from images of idealized pastoral nature...
I will have the pleasure of presenting the installation of sound ceramics Ecouter la terre, at 5:30 pm at Agroparis tech as part of the Colloquium Vivant.
as part of the "Tilting of the Worlds" exhibition

Artist talk and roundvisit,
We invite you to share a drink in the new Maltfabrikken art buildings, and you will be the first to be invited to visit the place and participate in the first artistic event!
The French artist Karine Bonneval, resident of the Secret Hotels Earthwise centre in Bogens, will be at the Malting House to present her work. Karine is working on the "Vertimus" project, which focuses on the plant complexity and on the interactions between humans and plants. What if we could hear the mushrooms grow? Or exchange breaths with the trees?
Come, listen, discover with us and tour the buildings of Spritnye with its different sites, its workshops and its artists' residences

Guz is a headdress for a plant and a musician.
The Guzmania and Emmanuel Hubaut (Les Tétines Noires, Dead Sexy, Pest Modern) play together in a deliberately minimal set up, consisting of an electric guitar and some analogical effects.
Going to the end of anthropomorphisation, Plant me is a performance where the plant "speaks", in relation to Emmanuel's guitar improvisations, for an attempt at communication and hybridization tinged with irony.
At 9pm, Gr_und, Seestraße 49, 13347 Berlin
A proposal from Karine Bonneval and the Studio Décalé
Inspired by the films on the movement of plants as they straighten up, Emilie Pouzet proposes a sensitive and sensory journey through the dance gesture. This workshop will be based on the observation-organization of the plant movement. In the meantime, it will be a question of exploring together different movement organizations in order to visit, taste and then activate a dance with and for plants. These notions and discoveries of movements in dialogue with the plant thus invite us to change our perceptions of the natural elements and decompartmentalize / open / widen our relationship with life.
Trained as a graphic designer and dancer, these practices have singularly enriched her field of research between the visual arts and dance. Émilie Pouzet develops performances, installations and videos that question the body and its possible paths of representation.
Conference bent in the wind: this reading is performed by Karen Houle, in an invitation to sink into the posture of a plant subjected to the elements. The reader and her audience must then adapt their position and listening to this unpublished text by the philosopher and poetess teacher in Guelph, Ontario. Plants move, plants use very specific skills and analyses of their environment to adapt. Together we will experience it through all our senses.
