Some years ago this family decided to move to a house isolated in the mountains. Île walks along the world they have built for themselves, trying to understand its essence while taking distance from the collective imaginary of this way of living.
So throughout their silence and intimacy, Île explores the implications of choosing a life out of the social norm and in contact with nature, focusing on the encounter with oneself, the dreams, the yearning to discover and the family’s identity.
Île conceives nature like they have shown me, as part of the human being, as a space that determines the perception of time and nourishes inner observation, curiosity, and creativity. This project raises considerations about the concepts of freedom and isolation –given their double nature of physical condition and state of mind- and how they transcend into love, fears, the relationship with nature and innocence.
