Last summer in 2013, invited
by L'Association Art Patrimoine Ozenay, I made the first explorations
in the area of Ozenay.
The area is hilly with meadows and vineyards, surrounded by beautiful
hedges and a small stream flows through.
The Natouze, initially invisible but soon it becomes for me an
important element in the landscape around Ozenay.
Often standing on both sides hedges or trees along the stream
so it remains invisible but therefore traceable in the landscape.
Closer to the river you discover the ever flowing water with its
many colors. Traditionally, the stream is a source of income and
utility. He was / is used for irrigation, drainage, to levy tolls
when crossing and by using water mills the stream made different
kind of machines working.
I walked along the stream, from the source to where it flows into
the Saône, made pictures and video and film recordings.
I spoke with the Syndicate de la Natouze and visited several mills.
In the rectory there wil be a work about the color nuances de
Natouze and in the garden of the castle I wil make the current
of the natouze in nylon .
