ANCIENT FUTURE LANDSCAPE
in collaboration with Olga Kisseleva
The administration of the Negev Museum of Art in Beersheva has invited the Olga Kisseleva to present her new project “Listening to Trees across the Jordan River” within the museum walls, as a personal exhibition. The project includes contributions by many members of CNRS and Sorbonne University, researchers, and postgraduate students: B. Muliya, E. Delprat, K. Tang, A. Kiriutin, L. Chak (a postgraduate working at the Laboratory under Prof. Olga Kisseleva), and many others.
“Listening to trees across the Jordan River” continues the extensive “EDEN“ project of the Art & Science Laboratory of Sorbonne University, focusing for the most part on several pressing issues, such as: intra-specific and interspecific communication; the revival of extinct species of plants, and particularly trees; the ecological education of the public, and environmental protection in general. Lilia Chak created this series of photos in frame of her PhD research in Sorbonne (under the direction of Prof. Olga Kisseleva).
