Deep in the forest : this has been for centuries the place for magics, romanticism, and sometimes terror. Classical movies such as Aguirre, Apocalypse Now, Fitzcarraldo, explore that very “ancient” forest. But today, the forest is not any more what it was : if it does remain an elsewhere for solitude, it has also become an overexploited zone, a space rapidly transforming – if not disappearing. Today’s videasts show us falling trees (Minna Parkkinen, Fernanda Rappa), as did Michael Jackson with his famous Earth Song. Forest is also a theater of pure aesthetics (Éva Magyarósi, Mikael Vilchez), walks and thoughts, philosophy (Peter Land, Jaana Kokko), and fun (Maria Duncker). And despite the disqualification of the forest as transcendental entity, there remains an overwhelming desire for conservation and resurrection (Luc Jacquet).
With videos by : Alix Delmas, Maria Duncker, Jaana Kokko, Mikko Kuorinki, Peter Land, Éva Magyarósi, Minna Parkkinen, Fernanda Rappa, Jean-François Robic, Mikael Vilchez.
