Meadow is part of the Occupy Mars project, conducted by Pauline Julier and Clément Postec, which sees Mars as a mirror of Earth at the dawn of the new age of space exploration, extractivism, and colonialism. It bridges multiple, alternative perspectives that question both past and future to bring new narratives to the fore. Through a series of films, publications, and public discussions, the project aims to insert new, insurgent voices into the fray. A first exploration took place in the Atacama Desert in Chile, where the training sites of NASA’s rovers are located next to one of the largest lithium mines in the world. From this trip was created the video installation (three-channels) Follow The Water, in which the protagonists tell their attachment to this territory. The title refers to The Meadow by James Galvin, 1992
This is the 8th artist’s publication in conjunction with the yearly summer exhibition in the area of the Mauvoisin Dam in Vallais, Switzerland, curated by Jean-Paul Felley.
