Piqûre-Lunaire by Thomas Grogan⠀
15.11.2019 | 6.30pm - 10pm
La Becque (La Tour-de-Peilz)
Thomas presented his work produced during his residency at La Becque in September 2019.
The event included a presentation of his research, a tasting of Lavaux wines and a virtual reality art installation.⠀
"Piqûre-Lunaire" is an immersive video work that projects itself into an empirical landscape, drawn by a geological, cosmological, pastoral and literary history. It plays on the plurality of conscious elements, human and other, that contribute to this environmental architecture.⠀

Iris Andreadis and Pauline Lemberger organized a wonderful "Souper Solaire" in the garden on August 31, 2019.
They spent a month at La Becque exploring different solar cooking techniques, travelling throughout Suisse romande to meet local producers, fishermen, gardeners and food specialists.
