The Ways of the world

Context

This fourth season of paysage> paysages steps into the landscape disorientated. A disorientation that, for a long time, was the privilege of the traveller passing through unfamiliar country, then of the western tourist enjoying a change of scenery. A few vagabond figures like Victor Segalen or Nicolas Bouvier managed to become porous to the world, writing incandescent prose permeated by its endlessly diverging ways. However, in most travel literature, any sense of otherness is obscured or confused by the quest for the exotic.The postage stamp, postcard and travel agency brochure have been the icons of this exoticism. Far away places arrived here as fictions, served up as screensavers devoid of any lines of force that might disturb their tranquil surfaces.

And yet… every experience of the landscape begins, first and foremost, as a disorientation. Including our own immediate environment, in a time when our familiar surroundings constantly re-appear to us “disoriented”, vacant, adrift in planetary standardization. This disorientation is the dominant experience of the contemporary world; the mirror image of the change of scenery sought by the tourist, unmooring place from its foundations, from the habits and uses that have sculpted it over time. The “sites” demarcated by the tourist industry, the agricultural industry, as transport hubs and offshore platforms occupy countries like a foreign army, in an amnesia of belonging. They are places cloned, of which the model – both precursor and prototype – was the colonial plantation; identikit environments slowly eating up the world.

We live with the illusion of landscape as something stable, something that can replicated endlessly, without variation even as the rapid metamorphoses of our actual ecologies demand of us other modes of perception, of feeling, of thinking. It becomes essential to forge new connections with the poetic density of place and the living beings that populate them, with a living world whose becomings remain always open, polyphonic, punctuated with entangled trajectories, with no promise of stability and indifferent to our interests and projects.

Promises

For this fourth season, Ça Remue ! brings together vernacular, artistic and scientific knowledge practices that question our uses of the world and re-makes them with a smile. They are bird-singers, anthropologists, shepherds, performers, philosophers, physicists, ecologists or landscape architects… Two days during which they will lend their energies to bringing us down from our supposed God’s eye view in order to welcome the world as it is. The university campus in St Martin d’Hères will be transformed into layer cake of experimentations with the invisible, neglected, silent constituents of our world – roots and rhizomes, textures of soil, the qualities of the water table, the sonorous punctuations of birds… – in order to foster more careful uses of the world. Centred around the Maison de la création et de l’innovation, weaving together performances outdoors with debate indoors, these two days aim to multiply our modes of collective intelligence and alliances of knowledge-practices.

Pré-program 

Marie-Pascale Dube (1st day / Maison de la création et de l’innovation)

This actor-performer has expressed herself with sounds since childhood, sounds that she cannot really describe or explain, sounds that escape from her throat while retaining the obstinate presence of other states and other places from her body. Breaths, groans, vibrations, gasps, nothing in her songs resembles a well-tempered voice in the West. Marie-Pascale Dubé would later come to understand that these sung forms have already existed within First Nation traditions of throat singing. She undertook an apprenticeship with an Inuk mentor, an experience that not only changed her vision of the history of her native country, Canada, but unsettled her own personal history, her relationship with nature and the cosmos. Her song continues to evolve in her, to surprise her, to go beyond her and to draw its own trajectory.

Douglas White (September, October / Siting of the work in progress)

This UK artist works for several weeks on the forest floor to unearth the root systems of trees. Through careful extraction of layers of humus, using the tools and methodology of an archaeologist, Douglas opens a window on the inextricable networks and fragile interactions from which the bonds between different trees, shrubs, bushes, mushrooms that make up this undergrowth are woven. The most recent scientific observations are joined here by the forester’s vernacular knowledge and the artist’s intuition: each forest rests on an underground world of infinite collaborations and signals between different species that escapes human observation and therefore remains neglected. Yet, woven together underground with thousands of miles of living fungal yarn, the trees feed and heal each other. This mycorrhizal under-carpet connects trees in gigantic intelligent communities which sometimes extend over hundreds of hectares.

Pierre & Rémi Janin (day 1 / Siting of the work in progress)

These brothers are architects, famers and landscape architects. The work of the farm – the movements of livestock and ploughing – are at the heart of landscape practice. They take into consideration, in the most powerful sense of the term, the surrounding environment, the poetic density of the place, the living beings that populate it to think about the specificities of territorial becomings.

Laurent Four (day 2 / Departing from the Maison de la création et de l’innovation)

This shepherd gives performances that are difficult to describe in words, somewhere between a happening and therapy, whose aim is to help us rethink and re-experience the place of domesticated animals in human societies. A subtle and silent diplomacy of body, gesture and look.

Bird singers (day 2 / Departing from the Maison de la création et de l’innovation)

These mimics invite us on a walk through the landscape, listening for the virtuosos hidden in the undergrowth – blackbird, song thrush, Eurasian nuthatch, black-headed warbler, swift pouillot, chickadee, red throat – and responding with uncanny likeness, provoking remarkable conversations improvised on the day with the different species present.

Alexandra Engelfriet (day 2 / Siting of the work in progress)

This Dutch artist struggles with telluric depths, the geological memory under our feet, working directly with the smells and the raw matter of the silts accumulated over the centuries, sculptural undertakings in which she disappears in a form of trance that leaves a trace in the material, bruised and sensual, abandoned without retouching or remorse.

Rachel Gomme (day 2 / Departing from the Maison de la création et de l’innovation)

This performer composes intimate exchanges with the world, inviting us to attend to the shared movement of our breath and the wind through branches, the silence of the trees and the stillness of the body, in order to widen our perception of the lived landscapes.

Jordi Galí et la compagnie Arrangement provisoire (day2 / forecourt of the Maison de la création et de linnovation)

BABEL is a tower 12m high, a utopia assembled and animated by 25 performers live in front of an audience. From its construction to its dismantling, the tower echoes the group on the ground, translating the quality of the relations present. A collective work, powerful and fragile, intimate and monumental. 

Artist / researcher conversations (day 2 / Maison de la création et de l’innovation/ from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.)

Ça Remue ! continues paysage> paysages tradition of conversations between worlds. Each hour, and for one hour, invited artists, researchers, carriers of vernacular knowledge come together as a duo or a trio in conversation. This exchange is punctuated by questions from our accomplices from previous seasons – Alexandra Arenes, Maryvonne Arnaud, Daniel Bougnoux, Yves Citton, Caroline Duchatelet, Chloé Moglia, Nastassjia Martin, Mathias Poisson, Olivier de Sépibus, Henry Torgue, Martin Vanier….

The edition: landscape-animal

As we witness the collapse of animal populations, it seems urgent and necessary to highlight the animal part of humanity.

The humanization of the world has prospered by enslaving other species, to the point of forgetting the animal roots of our sensations and our emotions, the distant complicity shown by the paintings of the Lascaux or Chauvet caves. Wild or domesticated, animals have broadened our awareness and perceptions, and it would be a terrible regression to accept a shared world between the industrialization of “useful” animals and a generalized ecosystem desert.

So that humanity does not escape from human beings, we must recomposed human societies in order to facilitate the movement, the stay and the blossoming of animality, that is to say, to assemble entanglements of rhythms and trajectories. who do not just bend to human interests and projects. Because animals participate in the balance of our societies by their work, their affection, the irreducibility of their behavior.

By combining the knowledge and sensibilities of shepherds, artists, breeders, philosophers, anthropologists, ethologists, geographers …, landscape-animal draws the contours of a more intense and balanced relationship between living beings sharing the same land.

landscape-animal

There is no virgin nature. There are only territories where the living are deeply inscribed and composed day by day, transforming them by their mere presence, by their breathing, by their capacity to invent unheard-of uses – nibbling the soil, weaving the drafts, flirting with water and the sun in unlikely alchemy. Each landscape crystallizes this proliferation of relationships, initiatives, tactics and special effects, this jumble of entangled trajectories, indifferent to human interests and projects, but where the human slowly emerged.

It is from the perspective of this interwoven construction of the landscape by humans and animals that we will approach the season 03 landscape> landscapes from March 20 to June 20, 2019. Here are some highlights of the program:

Between dog and wolf > Antoine le Menestrel > “Cathédrale” de Voiron > March 23, 2019 at 19h In opening of landscape-landscape

Building on an essential monument of the city, the church of Saint Bruno located in the heart of the city, Antoine le Menestrel undertakes with bare hands and for 40 minutes the vertical ascent of the facade to reach the sky to 67 meters from the ground, as if gravity did not concern him. The dialogue is fragile, delicate, magnetic between this disproportion of the building and this body, the arrogance of this little human animal, this bird made man, lizard until the central rosette, fluttering around the clock, before to run your head upside down between the warheads and cornices. Virtuoso verticals, Antoine the Menestrel touches the stone, the caress of a finger before taking it to the body and rush to meet the gargoyles, climbing without apparent effort to the top of the steeples.

La vigie Abraham Poincheval > Vizille Domain Park > Device visible from Thursday, May 2, then performance 24h / 24 from Thursday, June 6 to Wednesday, June 12, 2019 

For a week, 24 hours a day, Abraham Poincheval lives in a sculpture. Nestled on top of a mast, like a monkey or a hawk, he watches and contemplates the city of men: “Installed on a platform of one meter ninety long and a meter wide, I stay a week in total autonomy. At this raft of the peaks, I am attached by a lifeline and all the equipment on board: a waterproof bag, a first aid kit, meals for a week, two jerrycans of nine liters, a red and a white , a watertight can, trash bags, a gas stove, kitchen equipment, two lighters, toilet paper, change of clothes, a high mountain sleeping bag, a rain cover, a cloak rain, a sleeping mat, a headlamp, a climbing harness, a dozen carabiners, a rope of thirteen meters. By this spectacular gesture Abraham Poincheval questions our animality and the unstable border between species. But this installation is also anchored in a very old imaginary, in particular that of Symeon le Vieux (392-459), monk of Syria, nicknamed the Stylite for having chosen to live his life of hermit at the top of a column (pens , in Greek), where he spent the rest of his days without ever descending, in the absence of any protection from the sun or bad weather. The faithful visited him during his lifetime, the food being given him in a basket pulled by a rope. Subsequently, a vast pilgrimage complex northwest of Aleppo, called Qalaat Siman, was built around its column. Other saints lived like him at the top of a column or at the top of a tree. These extreme gestures paradoxically express the elevation of the soul through reading, prayer and humility, and how asceticism is a daily struggle.

Vizille Domain Park
June 6 > Wednesday 12

 

Sentinels > Victoria Klotz > Vizille Domain Park > 20 March> 23 September 2019

Implanted in majesty in the park of the Domain halfway between the domesticated nature of the French garden and the animal park, “The sentinels” is a monumental installation composed of ten animals which overhang us since long mats stuck on the ground. At once close and inaccessible, these animals observe us as well as we observe them. The animal species chosen: a wolf, a chamois, an owl, a marmot, a wild boar, but also a zebra or an antelope, have a fascinating and spectacular presence, joyous, sensual and serious. “Sentinels” thus evoke a kind of elemental animal as did the totems of the Amerindian tribes, that is to say, a founding animator, mediator, ambassador of the distant living, of immemorial origins, but an animality whose However, the future seems so uncertain today that it must return to the center of our concerns and our social order.

Dialogue with a herd > Alpine pastures federation> Domaine de Vizille park> 3 May> 6 May 2019

How to approach a flock without fear and without putting oneself in danger? How do animals see, smell, experience the world? How to contact and communicate with animals? The “Dialogue with a herd” workshops offer an unprecedented opportunity to live an unforgettable experience close to alpine animals. You will never look at a flock again with the same eyes.

Experimentation open to the public on May 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th at 10:00 am (Duration: about 2 hours)

 

Water Memory > Cyrille André > Park of Vizille Domain : May 2 > September 23, 2019

A white whale swimming in the air between the tree casks of Domaine de Vizille invites us to cast off and abandon ourselves to daydreaming. Have whales thus crossed Vizille at the time when the Tethys, the primitive ocean, covered the whole of Europe? Has she escaped Noah’s Ark or is she swimming after a catastrophic rise in sea levels caused by extreme global warming ?

Common property > Victoria Klotz > Domaine de Vizille Park: May 2 > September 23, 2019

If the common property is a moral notion that refers to the idea of a shared heritage among all members of a community, it is important to consider the possibility of integrating animals into this community. One could consider that domestic animals are “part of the people” and that they have an indisputable place in the use of the commons. This is why the artist installs bird boxes for the Colvert canes living in this site of Vizille, collective property, linked to the history of the French Revolution and to this perspective of shared common property.

Maibaum > Jordi Galí – Cie Arrangement Provisoire > Domaine de Vizille Park > Saturday May 4th at 2pm and Sunday May 5th at 11am

Maibaum is a monumental volume, consisting of 8000m of meticulously woven string carefully woven by five performers, whose form appears to us at the end of the performance, revealing the meaning and the necessity of each gesture produced. During the two and a half hours of its development, the spectator will be free to come and go as he wishes to assist and experience this space being created.

: Plus d’information > le programme de Ça remue à Vizille

Each landscape is the heir of precarious balances, the index of lush and unstable dynamics between atmosphere / soil / plants / animals / humans. In this sense, it is always the index of a state of relations. Carefully observing a landscape can decipher relational logics past and present, and helps us discern the toxic components of its future state. The state of the premises seems alarming but we inherit immemorial innovations that we must reinvest: and the relational territory involving bees, flowers and beekeeper, or transhumance granting alpage + sheep + sheep + dogs + wolves.

On this promising soil, artists, researchers and animal practitioners gather in Vizille from Thursday 2 to Saturday 4 May to cross their approaches and to found new relationships between living species, new behaviors, new evolutionary directions that preserve , renew and amplify the quality of ecosystems. Every day, outdoor performances and experiments will allow us to play, test and deepen our animal relationships. These experiments involving animals and art installations will be extended beyond May 8th.

Architectural birdhouses > Maison de l’Architecture de l’Isère > 21 March> 21 June 2019 / in partnership with the National School of Architecture of Grenoble, the League of Bird Protection, the Rectorate

In association with the Maison de l’Architecture, we will offer ENSAG students, as well as professional architects and all the inspired, to design and build a birdhouse. All the cabins will then be exposed to the M.d’A during the 3 months of landscape> landscapes. Each construction will have to offer a comfortable refuge to the birds, adapted to its way of life, each species looking for different spatialities for singular uses. Through this contest, it is the attention to the place of animals in the city and their preservation is mobilized here. Simple poetic or extravagant cabins, miniature houses or palaces of the Thousand and One Nights, the works resulting from this call for participation will be assembled in a set welcoming the infinity of animal diversities.

Alban de Chateauvieux > Lost > VOG, art center of Fontaine> March 7 to May 4, 2019

On January 12, 2007, Alban de Chateauvieux stops in the middle of the street in front of a little placard bearing these words written in blue chalk “LOST PIGEON WHITE”, followed by a telephone number which is missing a number. This small paper hanging on his only piece of Scotch, was a revelation for Alban who, since then, collected over the course of his travels posters of lost animals. This exhibition honors extinct animals whose singular life has counted and whose absence reveals their emotional importance. They are all clearly individualized and carrying singular qualities, one beautiful, affectionate or tender, the other accomplice, reliable, funny or faithful. Each message of distress testifies to this established complicity and the intense relational link built day after day between a human being and an animal being, a form of broken harmony. For companionship familiar with animals reflects a relational need that goes beyond the scope of social exchanges to express other emotions, other scales of ourselves, difficult to express between humans. The animal parts of oneself, maybe, or fragments deeply buried and inaccessible without the help of these animal accomplices who intercede with other worlds or translate them, sliding without fear of vertigo on the edge of a window to blend in with the night or inhale carefully a breath of air laden with riddles.

François Génot > Charcoal >Jules Vallès, Art Gallery of Saint Martin d’Hères> April to May 2019

François Génot is attentive to a certain savagery that remains or reappears in the wastelands, the neglected spaces of our urban environment. The spontaneous and irreducible emergence of the living, the disorder of the forms and the vegetal and animal dynamics are at the heart of his work. During his scouting on the sites near the place of exhibition, he picks brews of branches that he transforms into charcoal and then draws with the charcoals obtained directly on the wall. The movement of his hand generates forms of appearances as disjointed, neglected, carefree as that of the young shoots in spring, that is to say, fuzzy, open, disconcerting forms that project and explore all the possibilities offered to survive . And our viewer’s eye is invited to enter the depth and complexity of the drawing to delve into the enigmatic presence of the living.
