KARINE BONNEVAL

France 1970

Since 2015, she works with teams of scientists to carry out art and science projects on our invisible exchanges with the all-alive.
For several years, Karine Bonneval has concentrated her research on the paradoxical relations we have with the living.
Through the notions of territory, exoticism, exploration, hybridization, raw materials, it questions our relationship to nature, which man has domesticated without always realizing that he is an integral part of this whole he dominates. With sculpture, video and installation, she tries to bring out the necessary alterity between human beings and other living beings, especially vegetals. With poetry but also malice, associating natural and artificial, artisanal and industrial, it raises the question of adaptation, dialogue with a milieu made up of our privileged interlocutors.
Gunther Ludwig, 2015.

Project

Listen to the soil

Listen to the soil is an art-science project in collaboration with the Rillig group, Plant Ecology Laboratory of the Botanical Garden of Berlin, and Fanny Ryback, bio-acoustician of the Orsay faculty, France. Together, we are trying to record sounds that are produced by the acoustic activity of living organism from different soil samples. From this recording, I’m building sounded sculptures in clay or ceramic to give to hear these sounds of the earth.
The soil on which we walk is not a simple and inert raw material, it’s a world in itself, complex and alive.
The earth is loaded with many symbols: it is our planet first, the ground on which we grow our food, a raw material of construction, the surface on which we are anchored and on which we stand, the territory on which we live. Together, scientists and artist, are trying to account for invisible exchanges which we have, as a human being, with the rest of the living world. A interaction constant but sometimes tiny, of which it seems to me very important today to rediscover the richness.
