We are entering the forest. The journey is long by the river. We are getting deeper into the waters. Guided by Eduardo Kohn’s book , I came to look for a non-human language through which vegetables, animals and insects communicate with signs, legends, trances and the dream.

We are enchanted by the graciousness of the forest: the glitters of light under the canopies, the coolness of foliage, the symphony of birds, insects, drops of water leaking from big leaves and absorbed by the moss at our feet.

Noémie Goudal explores the Thai forest, analyzes it and tries to identify each element and each sound. It is an unsolvable puzzle that goes beyond the mind. Images, memories, scents and sounds erupt. What was unknown unfolds in color and shapes like hybrid and familiar reconstitutions.
