“Lands” represents a human community, through the image of a choir made of ice feet.
This creation features about thirty participants of all ages representing a human community, like a choir composed of ice feet. A plastic and choreographic project that connects us and makes us sensitive to the world we live in.
Through an ephemeral and collective performance conceived for the public space, the puppeteer Élise Vigneron in collaboration with the circus artist Eleonora Gimenez question the ecological stakes and the traces left by Man after his passage. The participants, whose feet were cast in ice by the artistic team, are the actors of this choreographed installation. The singularity of each one, the bodies and the individual stories, then form a chorus and find together a collective identity. The ice is here the mirror of the fragility of the world and its transformation into water, the story of the ephemeral. A poetic and sound moment to see with your family!

Photographic installation by Christophe Loiseau
In photography, I like above all the devices allowing the shifts. Those who intertwine reality and fiction, natural and artificial lights. I situate myself at the place of this separation, transformed by the staging of the space that composes it and the events that take place there. When everything is in place, there is always a moment when this little galaxy that we have organized liquefies to leave all its place to the unexpected. – Christophe Loiseau
The photographic project carried out with Christophe Loiseau is presented in the form of situations of the participants with their feet of ice, collective and individual portraits, putting in play our human existence with the ephemeral character of the ice, materialized by the various states of fusion. These portraits give rise to a specific installation, they are the trace of this common artistic adventure.
