What if whispering could be a metaphor for a way of creating and living within biodiversity?
Observing and listening, being present to the world while only leaving gentle trace?
The studio then becomes a garden, the exhibition space a dune, deep listening a method of working and exchanging with the public and the reader.
Le Chuchotement / The Whisper is Félicia Atkinson's new artist's book, bringing together photographs, drawings and poems. They revolve around the eponymous installation located on the pointe d'Agon, on the west coast in Normandy. On a dune acquired by the artist for the Conservatoire du Littoral, stands a pierced wooden sculpture. Around this sculpture, inside this wild dune and facing the sea, the walker is invited to become a whisperer, and listen to what surrounds him.
