The French pavilion at the Venice Biennale is open to the elements, conjuring up in the Giardini the “follies” of the romantic parks of the 18th century. Now it has become the theatre of an apparition, of an experimental ecosystem that reveals a state of nature unlike any other.Under the skylight stripped of its glass and in its wooded walkways, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot offers the choreographic alchemy of three trees moving in time with their metabolism, variations in their sap flow and their sensitivity to light and shade. Behind these chimeras—these machine/nature hybrids—lies an animist vision of trees.

Known for installations that are as much auditory as visual, Boursier-Mougenot is an artist and composer based in Sete. First trained as a musician at the Conservatory for Music in Nice.
