Participation in event “Créations sur-le-champ” 2013, which takes place
this year from 16 till 20 October 2013 for the seventh year.
The place where
takes place event, orchard of Mr Michel Robert, “the Pavilion of the
apple” of the north
side, located at the foot of the Mountain of Mont-Saint-Hilaire,
Location: a small wood of maple close to an orchard
Dates: between 15 and October 19th, 2013.
Materials: stones, stocks of larch, stems of osier, dead larch branches
recooked iron thread.
Device: 44 niches constructed around a body sat on stocks or stones of
and distributed in the undergrowth, on both sides by a way.
Dimensions of in situ: an ovoid site contained in a rectangle about 100
meters of long by 30 meters of width. Every niche: about 1,50 meter of top by
0,60-0,90 meter of depth and 0,50-0,70 meter of width.
Participation : Suzanne, Denis and André.
The idea of
living in the space is one of my concerns. Every space is charged with
different elements; in situ, I explore them then work them to create a
symbiosis in this space. For this plan I went for a walk in the wood
and I noticed that the lines of trees bring us all towards the
vertical; but, to make in another way, I decided to notice the
landscape of another point of view. Having found no place for sitting
that a stump on the soil, I decided to test horizontality by
constructing niches above stocks and stones which I found as envelopes
of a potential user who is then more near the soil, with a vision more
brought closer. There is something that is neglected at the level of
the soil. Every site has its ambiences, niches are turned in various
These small architectures give an availability to sit down and to
"live" the forest, and that the forest "lives" in us in its turn… It is
from the order of an immersion.
Quantity of these small works distributed in the undergrowth
willy-nilly does not have to be seen right away. They are rather
perceptible or just between outlines, in the order of an appearance
which can suggest or give the feeling of a presence (one lives in the
forest, she notices us). It is irrefutably linked to this body shape
which is the model, the matrix.
In the enlightened part of the forest (under the sun) one perceive a
part lighter although with more marked shadows. Whereas in the less
exposed part, niches seem to us closer between them and accentuate the
heaviness of the space, as though they became dense, strange and
troubling creatures which emerge from the soil.
