Hélène David – Noces ou les confins sauvages
Noces ou les confins sauvages is a photographic narrative, an invitation to the deployment of bodies, to the sensory experience, to the listening of the invisible. Since the dawn of time, the wild coastline is the place where the sea, the animals and the men dialogue. This space of porosities and encounters with the Mediterranean nature has inspired bestiaries and mythology. Noces ou les confins sauvages, a contemporary and fabulous tale, tells the story of a common future, enchanted and vulnerable.
“And, so that no part of the world was frustrated of its share of living beings, the stars occupy
the celestial plain,
in the company of the gods with bodies;
the fish with shining scales established their residence in the waves, the earth appropriated the still wild beasts, the mobile air, the birds “.
The purpose of Noces or the Wilderness brings together a community of people beyond the world of photography. With a first launch in December 2017 planned at Au Bal – a place dedicated to the document image, the book will be presented at the Librairie Maritime in Marseille and at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature on January 20, 2018 as part of the Festival écouter la nature.
