“Supernature” is an imaginary safari which pays tribute to the forces of nature, its beauty and its poetry.
” I’m scared of Animals but I need them. They are flesh and blood. My strenght and hope. I build weapons to fight them and to nourish myself. From day to night I fight my war, all the time measuring my power and fragilities. We are from the same violent soil, weather the same storms. Sometimes I draw them on the rocks to tell our story : we are brothers of the wilderness.
I build walls, cities, capital. I’m reigning above nature, taking profit. My intelligence serves my interests, my machinery protects me. I became a modern man who is fighting his demons. I’m neither scared of darkness nor of the Animals which I dominate, exploit or tame. I feel free, and forget my primitive territory, as I’m running towards the light of the future. My technological achievements are superior to my emotional ones. I lost a part of myself. My solitude oftentimes is big.
It’s a dream where my wild brothers appear and bring me back to the fire and salt of my lands. A dream – colourful and blurry, sublime and unreal where silence follows storms, from dusk till dawn. A dream so poetic, it unfolds like a turban in the wind. I become again that naked child who admires : the strength and beauty of those who are not my pray any longer, but witnesses restituiting my missing part – me, the human animal.”
