Elsa Brès (France, 1985), Stella, 2016, 14’16”.
Facing a view of dunes, hands are putting together a heap of documents: maps, samples, 3D scans of landscape, thermographies. They elaborate a manifold, experimental and invading cartography of a moving landscape. This manipulation work erects Stella –an unpopulated seaside resort– as a milieu where the relationship between the instability of earthly matter and the authority of geometry becomes graspable. The perception process shifts, buildings are worn away, landscape is an architecture.
