Where is there to belong to? To not feel strange? To not ask permission? Ground. Home. A familiar land.
Une Terre Familière is structured as a series of long-take vignettes, each centered around a site purposing a collision of nature and artifice. Within highly manicured environments, these sites attempt to imitate natural processes and un-peopled ecosystems and to preserve and manage elements of nature. The figures in Une Terre Familière struggle to do their best with what they have–to find their own sun at the tanning salon, their own clouds in the steam room–to improve, to connect, to find “home” in the world.
