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 The reader and her audience must then adapt their position and listening to this unpublished text by the philosopher and poetess teacher in Guelph, Ontario.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.

Naturality...back to artifice.
And the city becomes nature, landscape, wild again...
From Alphonse Daudet Wood'sTown's fantastic tale, in which a community of migrants to America tries to build a city between river and forest but quickly encounters the hostility and invasive power of nature, Cahors Juin Jardins 2019 proposes a new theme as an interrogation: Naturalities, the return to artifice? What is naturality today? A nature that emerges spontaneously? A dynamic process not thwarted by man? A primordial forest? A primitive state of the Environment without human influence? A concept of Wilderness* designating the landscape in a supposed natural state... Does it not rather designate the guilt of man who, seeing the impact of his actions on the planet and fearing the consequences, advocates a fantasized return to nature? Or rather a use of artifice?
I will present three times a tasting ritual around the pieces listen to the earth. A culinary performance realized in collaboration with Ingrid Paul, Jérome Moulinou and Claudine Boyer.
as part of the artist residency of Dé-Jardiner’s event

Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE , London
Philosophers have long assumed that plants are inferior to humans and animals: static, inert, and unreflective. But recent scientific advances suggest that we may have underestimated plants. They can process information, solve problems, and communicate. We explore what plants can teach us about intelligence and agency, and ask whether plants think.
