Summoning the elements, capturing the invisible links that unite the components of the universe, grasping the processes of erosion, imprinting, crystallization, revealing the burning of the sun… Between fantasy of dominating the elements and creative humility of laissez-faire, recourse to nature and its manifestations has crossed different generations of artists since the early 1960’s. This catalogue collects the works of about fifty artists who ” pick up ” wind, light and pollen. Inhabited by an acute awareness of the fragility of the natural order, these practices draw a plea for the environment and a call to listen to and feel the secret life of the universe.
