Je vois trouble, longuement un paysage transitoire
This project of "enforestation" with scientists from the National Institute for Research in Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRA Avignon) is taking place on the site of Font-Blanche, an experimental station for the study of Mediterranean forests, where trees are dying as a result of climate change. The project will be a reflection on posture and experience. At Camargo, Sara Favriau will work on a catalogue project, as a transmission and poetic translation of experimentation and research.
Sara Favriau is in residence at the Camargo Foundation in February 2020, in partnership with the Observatoire des Sciences de l'Univers - Institut Pythéas (Université Aix-Marseille, CNRS, IRD).
