Une conversation is a geolocated soundwalk that invites you to follow two women as they wander around the city of Reims.

Hélène and Lucie meet up after a long time apart. Hélène, who has lived in Reims all her life, has lost an object, and to find it she invites her friend to retrace the route they took the day before. Lucie discovers the city through Hélène’s memories.

They walk through the streets, and as they go, in between lines, we wonder: what has she really lost? What are they looking for? Who is Hélène? Elements escape logic and chronology, and little by little, in the dialogue, the past comes up. From one street to the next, through the different buildings and eras, the discussion operates by telescoping and breaking up: the strict framework of the present explodes.

Through past events and their present echoes, through the bodies of Hélène and Lucie and their presence in the city, the condition of women and their contradictions are also revealed.

Amélie Lucas-Gary was born in Arcachon in 1982 and lives in Paris. After studying History and Cinema at the Sorbonne, Amélie Lucas-Gary graduated from the National School of Photography in Arles in 2009. Since then, her practice has evolved, and she has published three novels: Grotte (2014), published by Christophe Lucquin Éditeur, Vierge (2017) and Hic (2020), published by Éditions du Seuil. The latter was written during a writing residency in New Zealand. All Amélie Lucas-Gary’s novels deal with the question of creation: that of the universe in Hic, the author’s genesis in Vierge, the beginnings of art history in Grotte. She regularly works with artists on catalogs, exhibitions and performances. Today, she uses photography, sculpture and writing in turn or in conjunction, proposing a form that resonates with the artist’s work and shifts the way we look at the works. In this way, her literary work is strongly influenced by her preoccupations with the plastic arts, which she uses to serve her appetite for romance and adventure.

Around the Citadelle
Marseille

The opening of Fort Saint-Nicolas to the public in 2024, even if only partially, is a highly anticipated event for the residents of the city of Marseille. A heavy gate will finally open on one of Marseille’s most visible, best-identified buildings, most steeped in history – but also one of its most mysterious.

Valérie Manteau invites you to explore the sensitive shadowy areas that remain in the interstices of Marseille’s great heroic history, which was written stone by stone in the fort. A walk among the ghosts that plunges you into the mysteries of the Citadelle and sheds light on a little-known episode shrouded in fantasy and suspicion: the occupation of the Citadelle by hundreds of animals, under the aegis of the Army Health and Veterinary Service from 1978 to 2011.

By entrusting its evocation to a civilian who is simply a dog walker, this sound fiction, embodied at a human level, will accompany your journey and try to lift the veil on the taboos protected by the walls that stand in the heart of the city.

A project under construction with the support of La Citadelle de Marseille and Chroniques .

Etang des Forges (forges pond)
Belfort

“Les plantes chantent les affects – aux premiers rangs desquels la tendresse et l’attachement – et les émotions – parmi lesquelles on notera, en territoire d’Ouwa, une prédominance de la joie et de la mélancolie.” 

Ouwa is a geolocated soundwalk around the Forges pond, offering an immersive experience that makes living things audible.

During this fictional journey, you are projected into the distant future, where the Forges pond is now part of Ouwa territory. Author luvan invites you to an encounter with the world of plants. A utopia where strange sensory mutations enable a few individuals, known as “flora singers”, to hear, see and smell plants. 

Immerse yourself in a world where the boundaries between humans and plants become blurred. Follow this poetic trail, let yourself be guided and explore a world where nature speaks in mysterious languages. 

Welcome to Ouwa territory, where every step is an encounter with the unexpected.

Inspired by the therolinguistics of American science fiction author Ursula Le Guin, the Ouwa soundwalk offers an immersion in a “What if we could hear the rest of the world”.

A project in development with the help of the Espace multimédia Gantner.
