The fruitful meeting of the rural world and contemporary art within the framework of the collective experiment led by an art center in the forest trails.
Located in the heart of the Meuse region in France, the Vent des Forêts cultural association is home to a hundred works by international artists spread over 45 kilometers of forest trails. Olivier Comte's film retraces this adventure, which began in 1997, an unlikely meeting between two worlds that everything opposes: rurality and contemporary art. The artists, hosted in the homes of local residents, work with local artisans. This collective experience, unique in France, has recently become a center of contemporary art of national interest, allowing art to dialogue with a unique heritage—the forest—while questioning our relationship with nature.
