As part of a national event supported by COAL, art and sustainable development.
Day organised by Karine Bonneval in collaboration with the friends of Pesselières.
Who is this forest right next to us? We sometimes walk through it, without really knowing it. Neither very big, nor majestic, it is nevertheless a complex and organised place of life, from which we have gradually disassociated ourselves. Yet we are the forest. Our proposal is to meet for an afternoon and an evening in the communal forest of Jalognes to rediscover it in its complexity, its beauty and its fragility. Personalities from science, forestry and the world of living art will be there as "translators".
- Lectures in the forest: Claire Damesin, tree ecophysiologist, Ecology, Systematics, Evolution Laboratory at the University of Paris-Sud, will show us how trees live and what they can teach us. Jacques De Roland-Dalon, silviculturist in sustainable forest management at Doys will talk about the different ways of managing a forest.
- Poetry performed by Ray Partant: Lecturometer, a text in ribbon form to be unrolled between a tree and a human as it is read, advancing step by step and word by word with a carbon impact close to the ideal exchange. A performance measuring the trajectory of destinies, the distances between beings and the species of the global open being.
- Listening workshops: Karine Bonneval, sound walks in small groups to listen with "super ears" to the life of the soil, the bark, the leaves.
- A convivial moment with the friends of Pesselières and shared food.
- SELOIBAB & STOLEBIB : Landscape / Dance / Masks, between bitch and she-wolf, by Emilie Pouzet.
- a craftsman and users of the future
- a multi-headed monster questioning the relationships and representations of living forms
- a cosmological shift between the Anthropocene and Chthulucene eras
- a childlike empowerment where the forest becomes a castelet in order to open up worlds and magnetise our universes.
- Welcome to our home, by Caroline Rosse, a journey through the night in search of its protagonists.
Visitors and torches search for words, phrases and messages that glow in the night. The artist blurs the lines of thought, creates a dialogue between the forms of life that coexist in the Great Whole. She uses the elements in the landscape - a large tree, an animal passage, a rock, a stream - to make their words emerge and connect us to their presence.
