In a park, you are often tempted by confusing the vegetal with the natural. This confusion directly ask the meaning of the Nature’s organisation, that is the question of what kind of choices (politics) and patterns (socials) are participating to the structure of this organisation.

A place that reminds you another place. A place that show off another place. A place that substitute itself to another place. A Nature who wouldn’t have nothing natural but only a few visible elements, not the whole organisation. What kind of perception and connection to the world imply the organisation of a park?

I’m recalling I like America and America likes me, the Joseph Beuys’s performance.

I’m going to rehearse with a (small) pack of hounds and a walkman stacked to the ears. To be in scenery, isolated from the world, and to touch this scenery, to build this scenery, these are the work directions in order to experiment the partition between an action and the landscape where this action is performed. What kind of space for projection ? What kind of space for fiction ? What’s the right place to be able to identify oneself ? To produce self reflexive movements ?

If the display of the plants in a park appears like a recall to the Nature, then the running dogs in it are the wild beasts of this Nature.
