Love, earth, ocean, cosmos

“Artist, teacher – researcher at university, lover of the earth and the ocean, daughter and granddaughter of oyster farmers, I am committed to the tenderness and care that we can give to these elements, in situated practices connecting other lovers of life. By infiltrating reality to the test of domination, I investigate subjects relating to ecofeminism, the peasantry and agricultural policies. Thus, I founded and directed (2004-2016) the La cuisine art center, focusing on food and agriculture, where I implemented a poetics of the city. As an associated artist, I then produced a program there on Seeds composed of various ecotopic experiments. Within my duo Becquemin & Sagot, we imagine a new Cosmocene Era.

Co-founder with Suzanne Husky of Le Nouveau Minsitère de l’Agriculture (the New Ministry of Agriculture), we work in a critique of agricultural policies and dream of fruitful transformations. Since 2023, I continue this adventure alone, seeking to re-engage a loving Eco-sensitivity through a dreamlike topographical practice intimately linked to my practices of meditation and trance."
